In 2017, The New Griots Festival is expanding! 

  • Growing from 3 days to 10 days

  • Doubling the amount of artist performances and master classes

  • Moving to the Guthrie Theater

To make 2017 possible, we need your help. Any amount helps us bring the voices of emerging Black artists to the Twin Cities!

The 2017 New Griots Festival is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
