All money received will go to the instructor(s). Visitors can purchase tickets on the day of the event at the welcome desk. We accept cash and card vis Square.
Maggie Benoit ’s objective is to produce enriching experiences that bolster the arts alongside entrepreneurial efforts in Atlanta. Her focus is to strengthen a community driven network, a conversation, a connection to resources and a place for beings to express constructively. This way the individual and community grow by staying curious, asking questions, creating solutions, as well as learning constructs of both personal and social space. The question arises, “how does one define the ability to connect the intimately personal to another tangibly?” Such an expression means finding love for self, love for another, love for something that holds meaning. Sharing said experience defines a landscape of varied media through intentional integration of work and life.
Angela Davis Johnson
Angela Davis Johnson, informed by the wisdom of the matriarchs in her family, creates paintings, sculptures, installations, and ritual performances to examine and archive the technologies of black folks. Merging art into a contemplative practice she embodies Live Dreaming - a process of deep listening, imagining, constructing, and recording personal +community ancestry. She generates experiential spaces to bring personal and communal healing around poverty, displacement, and state sanctioned violence. Co -creator of the Hollerin Space, an ongoing experimental healing installation, Davis Johnson has performed in several states in the regional south. Her works can be seen in galleries, museums, and private collections throughout the United States. When she is not traveling, the mother of two, lives and holds space in Atlanta, GA.
