The Queenpin Collective

The Queenpin Collective is a networking community turned non-profit organization founded by Ari and created to combat the idea WOC are less than or less deserving of living luxurious lifestyles. We are absolutely here for encouraging and celebrating minority women living abundantly.

As we move forward, our hope is creating and occupying spaces in which we center perspectives that are often overlooked and underrepresented, we provide equitable opportunities and representation both in the media, and in everyday life. While we are based in Pittsburgh, PA, we work to empower black and brown women from all over the country through our interactive social media and online communities.

Black Women in Art, an Annual Event Series

Black Women in Art is a collaborative event series by The Queenpin Collective and The Thirsty Mind Collective, with the goal of centering and elevating feminine voices of color in the art community.

We are always looking to grow and expand in order to better support the community and adequately portray Black women and WOC. We also hope to empower non-Black, and non-minority allies with the hope of more understanding and empathy related to racial injustice. Our goal is to occupy a space promoting not only equality, but equity and belonging as well. If you are interested in working with or getting involved with TQC, please use the form below.
