This Holiday: Feast… off each other!

Share your creativity … your ideas, your images, your words.

Last night I attended a reception held at the Leeway Foundation‘s office in Philadelphia for recipients of this cycle’s Leeway Foundation Art & Change Grant Recipients.

We introduced ourselves, shared our stories and interest and enthusiasm for each other’s proposals.

There was truly an abundance of great ideas, energy, and proposals for Art & Social Change Projects.  For example, one artist I met Ayoka Quinones, author of I Hear Olofi’s Song will be using her voice, combined with dance, music and words to preserve the Yoruba Tradition, which originated in Nigeria.  I look forward to following everyone else’s projects and witnessing how art has to power to transform, to heal and create social change.

What a feast… who needs turkey?!

    Congrats on your grant, Nanci! What a great project. Thanks for sharing the information about the reception. What a great way to get artists together and to add a level of investment in the funds that you are receiving. I look forward to reading more posts once you get your project started.
