Welcome! Perhaps you are wondering, just what is Slideluck?
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, we do all we can to facilitate and foster these connections online. Nearly all of the work that is presented is archived on our website. That means that once an artist shows work with us they automatically become a part of our larger, global community.
Our 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.
To learn a bit more about Slideluck and opportunities to partner with us, take a look at our reel. Hopefully now you have a clearer idea of what Slideluck is, but to learn more, we suggest you take a look at some of the artwork, photos, press and recipes archived on our site. We hope these inspire you to get involved in our growing community by submitting work, liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, Instagram,Vimeo or starting a Slideluck in your city.
Slideluck is a non-profit organization that depends on community involvement in everything we do. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation or get in touch with us about partnership, internships, volunteering and advertising opportunities. Without your participation Slideluck is just a funny word.
