Arwa Michelle Mboya, an alum from the Civic Media research group, has been awarded the 2023 Black Immersive Creators Grant for her "immersive Pole Show." The performance is set in a dystopian future where The War on the Black Female body has been won. With an AfroFuturist Feminist Approach, this showcase features seven pioneering Black Pole Artists and leverages projection mapping and generative art to transport the audience into a future where the Black body is celebrated, respected, and normalized.

The Black Immersive Creators Grant is an annual cash award of $10,000 for US-based Black artists who are interested in creating immersive artwork.
