About the Horizon Awards
For the past three decades, NBAF has been a vehicle to support talented artists in developing and showcasing their craft. This year, along with loyal donors and supporters of the arts, we are proud to continue this work through the inaugural NBAF Horizon Awards. The Horizon Awards Competition represents our evolution, growth, and enduring commitment to uplift emerging talent. We will honor three extraordinary artists who have utilized their artistic expression in ways that promote healing and restoration amidst the pandemic and societal unrest.
About NBAF (National Black Arts)
Founded in Atlanta in 1987 by the Fulton County Arts Council under the guidance of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, NBAF is recognized as the oldest multidisciplinary arts organization in the United States focused exclusively on the arts and artists of African descent. NBAF realizes its mission through partnerships with cultural and educational organizations, governments, individuals, corporate and private funders - partnerships that enable us, in part, to create pathways to success in the arts and in society, especially for those in under-resourced communities with disadvantaged circumstances. The United States Congress honored NBAF as a "national treasure" in 2008, and in 2018 NBAF received the Governor's Award for the Arts and Humanities in Georgia.
