The Nigerian American Professionals Association (NAPA), FINDING IJEOMA, and Cachet collaborate to bring you Bridging the Gap, a muti-facted experience featuring art installations, a panel discussion, live music, art installations, and dj performances. Join us at Tribe Supper Club on Saturday, April 6th starting at 6pm as we celebrate the culture and creativity of the Diaspora and empower each other to build bridges for a sronger, united global Black community.

Event Details

Bridging the Gap is a community-driven event aimed at:

  • Connecting Black Diasporic communities through networking, dialogue, and shared experience
  • Providing a platform for Diasporic community members in the Chicago area to discuss how we can seek to bridge cultural divides and promote inclusivity
  • Celebrating Diasporic cultures through creative disciplines including music, performing arts, and visual arts

We will accomplish these objectives through a multi-faceted experience to create space for members of the Black Diasporic community to come together to network across industries and sectors, participate in a panel discussion, engage in live music and DJ performances, and expose themselves to art installations by Black artists. By partnering with Tribe Supper Club and other Diasporic community members as panelists and featured artists, we also aim to provide a platform to support Black-owned businesses and local creatives.

This event is FREE and ALL are welcome. To make table reservations, please contact Tribe directly.
