by the Black Bliss Rangers
Our club space is a collaborative, community-driven, arts-based dreamscape that meets at the intersection of experiential design, visual imagery, and creative media production. We invite those who enter the space to contemplate imaginative and resilient productions of Black bliss. Our temporary club space— cosmic formation of black bliss—exhibits a range of multi-sensory installations incorporating visual arts, experiential design, and creative media production.
Two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, network and community-level adversities within the Black community “reduce[d] availability of nurturing interaction in strong and positively toned relationships community-wide. Our dreamscape as a temporary club space:
• Engages the community in co-constructing and comprehending imaginative and resilient productions of Black bliss
• Increases social cohesion by bringing local Black communities together for ongoing community participation
Held amongst a series of interactive installations and large-scale murals, the main night will center Black bliss + freedom during an evening filled with music, talent, and more. Our co-play dreamscape will be a functional, interactive space emphasizing critical connections to deepen relationships within the Black community.
***The Black Bliss Rave exhibition, including “Every Nigga Is A Star Trek” and the workshop/open studio hours center Black people and Black joy. With this in mind, this space is designated as a BIPOC-folx only social experience.***
Additional events will include open visiting hours to enjoy and relax in the space.
