Harlem Arts Advocacy Week is key to the mission of Harlem Arts Alliance. With the leadership of Executive Director, Linda Walton, Harlem-based HAA strives to unify artists and arts organizations, large and small, and to link the arts with other sectors within the community.
The theme this year is Harlem: Legacy. As an international brand, Harlem has drawn visitors, new and traditional residents of the Harlem community, interested in the spectrum of the arts and cultural experiences available via: plays, church experiences, clubs, film, music, food, street festivals and more.
Here are a few highlights from this year’s campaign:
