NeoSoul Arts Conference
Saturday, June 10, 2017
Interested in upping your Arts game? In learning from the best of the best? In spending a high-impact, high-energy day with hundreds of others seeking to do the same?
The NeoSoul Arts Conference is designed to do just that: for youth and adult leaders. We help people tell the Gospel story though the Arts through two separate, but intertwined programs: Arts Tracks for Youth and a Leadership Academy for Adults.
Everyone at the conference will experience the wisdom of our two master clinicians: Aunjanue Ellis and George W. Faison. Ellis is an American film, stage, and television actress, and producer best known for her roles in "Men of Honor" (2000), "Undercover Brother" (2002), "Ray" (2004), and "The Help" (2011). Faison is an DC native, dancer, choreographer, teacher, and theater producer, and winner of a 1975 Tony, a Drama Desk Award, and a 1991 nominee for the Emmy Award for choreography. He was a featured dancer with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, founder of the George Faison Universal Dance Experience, and co-founder/Producing Artistic Director of the Faison Firehouse Theater.
At registration, youth select which art form they want to focus on for the day (visual arts, theatre, spoken word, puppetry, music, mime or dance). After the opening celebration and sessions with master clinicians Ellis and Faison, youth will learn, apply and perform what they've learned at the final performance of the day. Adults will gain a robust understanding of how to use the Arts as outreach and how to plan and fund it for sustainability.
Registration closes June 5.
