Statement

Janice Bond 

Cultural Curator and Arts Advocate

 

“In our work and in our living, we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction.” – Audre Lorde

 

With a zeal for the creative and imaginative, Janice Bond is a curator, strategist,and advisor specializing in arts and culture. A combination of "Northern edge", "Midwest will", and "Southern hospitality", Bond's forward thinking and high energy approach has been utilized over the past decade in a range of both communications and creative initiatives. Her insight has also been an integral part of developing various communications plans from independent artists to “Fortune 100” companies.

The debut of her company SAVANT | SAVANT (Now Bond Creative Advisors) in 2009, began the incalculable journey of Janice leading stellar collectives of great artistic minds and institutions as a consultant. From Dakar to Detroit, local art exhibitions to international music festivals, her continued interest and investments in arts and culture stems from her passion for developing more impactful, shared, restorative, and sustainable creative economies globally. In the community, she lends her time to multiple organizations and institutions as a gracious speaker, board member, volunteer, and mentor. From 2013 to 2015, she was appointed and served as Director of Arts and Culture at IMAN with a focus of using art as a tool for social justice and restorative healing on Chicago's Southwest Side and beyond. 

 

Janice opened Gallery ONI in 2014, a contemporary art gallery and cultural space located in Chicago,Illinois dedicated to promoting the work of women artists of color. As a visual/multimedia artist, her original paintings, installations,and collective soundscapes focus on multidimensional human perspectives and identity, sacred geometry, sound frequencies, and indigenous fractal patterns found in various cultures and urban landscapes. 

In 2015, The Art Allies was launched, an initiative created to educate and develop more visual art collectors and arts entrepreneurs in major cities all over the world.
