The Maroon Arts Group (MAG) is a collective of creatives who have galvanized to develop and provide a platform for conscious art centered around the preservation and promotion of cultures of African descent. 


Join Besa and the Maroon Arts Group to help celebrate National Day of Service in Bronzeville. As a volunteer, you'll help to assemble a greenhouse and painting desks that will be distributed to local school children. Lunch will be provided after your volunteer shift.


MAG will provide gloves, hand sanitizer, and we'll also practice social distancing. Community interaction will take place during this volunteer event. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 


The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
