"kabila" means tribe in Swahili.
Started in October 2017, The Artist Kabila (tribe) is a monthly networking event in New York City, catered to diverse Artists sharing and cultivating new work. We highlight the Writer and Actor relationships but also offer other Creatives the opportunity to express themselves in a safe, encouraging and warm environment with other liked minded individuals. We also encourage and shine a light on the diversity of Artists from all types of backgrounds.
This collective is a place for Artist and Art Lovers to come together and inspire each other while networking. Over the past two years there have been many original scripts that were work shopped at the Kabila and have developed into fully produced projects. These original works were created with Actors and behind the scenes talent that were featured there!
Join Us on Sunday Fundays!
