Today many Indianapolis creatives find new ways to connect with their communities. Quiana Quarles calls herself an “artivist” -- she creates multimedia art that reflects issues of importance to the people around her. She’s also creator of Black Vegan Fest Indy, which works to improve health and food inequality in African American neighborhoods.

From WFYI's Arts and Culture Desk, Jill Ditmire spoke with Quarles about the public health crisis and her message, in art and action.

Quarles joined the conversation by phone. The food festival is currently still scheduled for late July.
