About the event

Black Love Convergence will be celebrating our 5th Year of gathering the Black Diaspora to fall in love with Blackness as an act of political resistance (b. hooks). This year’s gathering will bring together over 300 people virtually and at Acorn Center for Restoration under the theme Black Diasporic Wholeness: An Afro-Futurist Journey into Pleasure, Healing, Art & Spirituality June 17 - 19, 2022. This year we are inviting Black Artists  and Creatives (21 and over) to enjoy a special experience at our Retreat Center in Georgia, 60 minutes from Atlanta. Come enjoy an upscale off-grid experience on 8 acres of land, with a saltwater pool, pond, and medicinal herb farm. This artist weekend will be woven with virtual programming, and special opportunities for art-making, wellness, and connection. Included in your stay are accommodations in one of our off-grid rooms or glamping sites (click here to view more about our accommodations), meals, and weekend activities. 

The maximum number of spots is for 10 people. Applications are due by May 15, 2022. Applicants will be notified by May 25, 2022, of acceptance. This experience has the retail value of $600 - $850 per person. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
