POC POC is The Constant Now's mentoring program that connects young artists of color with art professionals. In the lead-up to the POC POC Manifesto empowering People of Color (POC) in the arts, the group invited experienced POC artists and curators to share their stories and experiences on how to navigate the art scene.

POC POC MANIFESTO @KUNSTHAL GENT on Friday, April 19, is a coproduction with Kunsthal Gent and part of the GIF Festival . The event consists of two live talks: from 13:00 - 15:00, and 20:00 - 22:00. There’s also an introduction to the works of POC POC artists, which is open all day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Kunsthal.
