What is Hot Cabinet?

Hot Cabinet is an artist collective that connects artists with organizers within communities in order to spread awareness, increase civic engagement and involve community members in transformative dialogues and collaborative fun events like screenings and performances. In 2011, Tiffany Joy Butler started Hot Cabinet as more of an initiative – collaborating with local businesses, community centers and alternative art spaces to showcase the work of local artists, women artists and queer/trans artists of color. Currently, with the collaboration of Devyn MaƱibo, we are becoming an active artist collective that hosts skillshare workshops within communities as well as co-organize open/curated screenings and performances. Our mission is to collaborate and create through our art and happenings and to promote progressive change within communities.
