Black Box Blackout
Black Box Blackout was born in 2022 to fulfill jazz singer Kristen
Warren’s vision to impact her community. Warren, a native of Melbourne, Florida, desired to put forth a production that sheds light on the dynamic contribution of black creatives while giving back to the most vulnerable in her community.
At its inception, Black Box Blackout impacted over 300 visitors from within the Space Coast. It provided an opportunity to a total of 60 black artists to display their creative work. The events successfully increased diversity exposure in Melbourne, FL, while raising money to support Ways of Brevard.
This year, Black Box Blackout will triple its audience engagement by serving an audience of 900+, featuring 85 black creatives, and raising a minimum of $1000 for The Children’s Hunger Project.
