Slideluck, a 501c3 non-profit arts organization, is a combination of a slideshow and a potluck and mixing things up is an essential component of our programming. Slideluck brings together diverse groups of people, artwork, food, music, ideas and perspectives under one roof. From this diversity something unique and magical is born. The work of established artists is shown alongside that of emerging and non-professional artists, with no distinction between them. Each event is localized, so artists from a community are presenting work to that community. The same goes for the home-cooked dishes brought by those who attend.
In a time characterized by virtual communities and online relationships, Slideluck is dedicated to gathering people face-to-face for one inspiring evening. And beyond the events themselves, they do all they can to facilitate and foster these connections online. Nearly all of the work that is presented is archived on their website. That means that once an artist shows work, automatically become a part of their larger, global community.
Their community-outreach wing, the Slideluck Youth Initiative is an after school program in Harlem and East New York that fosters creative expression and empowers students through the use of photography and multimedia storytelling. In doing so, SLYI develops valuable skills, enriches student’s lives, and strengthens community.
