The Urban Arts Leadership Program (UALP) is a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) and was designed to increase the participation of groups that have been historically underrepresented, particularly those of color, in the management of cultural and artistic organizations.

UALP is a pipeline for high achieving young leaders (college seniors or recent graduates) who have demonstrated a strong commitment to this goal. The Program offers professional development, networking opportunities, and paid Fellowship placements to aspiring arts administrators. Equally important, UALP offers Fellowship Host organizations tools and training that support institutional changes that encourage greater equity and inclusion.

The development of UALP has been guided by community input and the participation of more than 30 administrators from partnering cultural organizations. It is an immediate response to the needs of early career professionals and is meant to strengthen the cultural field.

Call and Response: Art Between Artists

Featuring the Work of Sallah Jenkins and Alma Roberts

Baltimore, MD, April 16, 2017 – The upcoming fine art exhibition Call and Response: Art between Artists will take place at the Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center 847 N. Howard Street Baltimore, Maryland 21201.  The exhibition will run between May 7th and June 24th, 2017.  This exhibition is not to be missed!

Call and Response is an exhibition of fine artworks by ceramic artist Sallah Jenkins and painter Alma Roberts. Through a collaborative process, these artists bring refreshing interpretations to the “call and response” idiom of musical liturgy. The interplay of their artwork creates a contemporary discourse deeply rooted in the African American experience. The art included in the exhibition results from “Conversations” between the artists.  As one artist gives the call the other responds through their art and vice versa; thus, operating in the true “call and response” tradition.
