The Sunflower Series Live Music Festival

The Sunflower Series is an annual performance series created in 2018 by Boston musician, artivist and poet, Genie Santiago, that is aimed at creating a safe space for artists allowing them to experience intimate bonds with their audience using performance and storytelling.

On August 6, 2021 at 7:00pm, in collaboration with ONCE Somerville, Boynton Yards, and Creatives of Color Boston, we’re celebrating the last rays of summer, nature, and reviving the Boston live music scene. This event will kick off with feature performances from local BIPOC artists Billy Dean Thomas, Genie Santiago, Shellz, Amanda Shea, and Naomi Westwater. There will also be food trucks and a bar open throughout the event. Post performances we’ll have a late night market featuring local BIPOC vendors from 10:00pm-12:00am.

About Creatives of Color Boston
In 2019,Creatives of Color Boston was founded by visual artists Janette Santos and Tammi Jean Fedestin with the goal of providing BIPOC artists the space and support they need in an oftentimes less than ideal climate. To achieve this, CCB created multiple events and popup exhibitions such as, “In-between Spaces”, “Show N Tell Series”, and “Giving To Yourself Week”. Genie Santiago, a local musician and artist, joined the team in 2021 bringing with her “The Sunflower Series”, a performance series for Boston based musicians.

As a collective built upon the premise of creating intersectional safe spaces for artists to connect and create together, we want to communicate to you that we are now more than ever committed to you all. We fully support artists of color in the greater Boston area and will continue to establish spaces for all BIPOC to gather, reflect, and simply just BE. We are your platform.
