AIR Serenbe is planning to bring eight of the nation’s top spoken word poets, storytellers, and emcees to a series of South Fulton public libraries in the fall of 2017. We have received a Project Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to deepen our investment in artists using speaking as performance, and we look forward to sharing this work throughout South Fulton County.
We plan to do a free “progressive performance” at three libraries, with a final ticketed evening show at a Cherry Hollow Farm in Chattahoochee Hills. We will film the daylong jaunt, eight artists in a van, including conversations and performances. Additionally, we will design an accordion guide print piece that underscores how voice shows up in a range of forms through these artists’ practices.
NURTURING CRITICAL MOMENTS OF IMAGINATION
AIR Serenbe, the non-profit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the creation of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices.
