More Info

The Africana Repertory Theatre of IUPUI (A.R.T.I.) is a program offered by the IU School of Liberal Arts, the School of Education, Africana Studies Program, and the IUPUI Office of Community Engagement. ARTI was developed to document and reflect the history, cultural life, and politics of peoples of the African Diaspora. 

As a public arts initiative, A.R.T.I.’s mission is deeply rooted in the commitment of artistic and community engagement through public performance, career development and postsecondary curriculum in the Arts, research, and challenging stereotypes about Black culture and the Arts. 

This year, A.R.T.I. is working closely with IndyFringe to present Indianapolis' first and only Black theatre festival, OnyxFest 2020, to celebrate original works of Black playwrights.

OnyxFest was developed a decade ago in response to the lack of diversity on stage in Indianapolis – to develop and present voices not often heard and dedicated to showcasing the diverse stories of African American playwrights. As part of its mission, A.R.T.I. uses the arts to convey and enhance understanding regarding the contributions of African Diaspora. 

For the first time, OnyxFest will be broadcast on WFYI and be available virtually to ensure these thought-provoking, original Black theatre performances reach not only local audiences, but also at a national and global level, including those that are restricted due to limitations brought about by Covid-19. 

Help us reach our 2020 goal of raising $5,000 in support of Black Arts theatre and its power to educate, unite, challenge, and address issues of social justice in our society by making your unrestricted gift today to support A.R.T.I.
