I wanted to share Uno Lady’s video as well as highlight a few of my favorites. All are worth watching. It is a short two minutes focusing on some of the most creative talents in Cuyahoga County. Watch them here
Here I am- Christa Ebert, expert nerd, music connoisseur.
I have been lucky to call RA Washington a friend prior to the fellowship. RA is the co-founder of Guide To Kulchur, a bookstore (and then some) located on W65th and Detroit. GTK also acts as “an incubator for emerging and marginalized voices within the print medium. Main projects include Cleveland Books 2 Prisoners, GTK Press, The Cleveland Zine Archive, and The Sally Tatnall Black Box.”… http://guidetokulchurcleveland.com/
I also made some new pals thanks to the fellowship and developed a fondness for Cleveland Public Theatre. Cleveland Public Theatre’s mission is to “raise consciousness and nurture compassion through groundbreaking performances and life-changing educational programs.” There programs and plays are unique, and quite frankly, badass. They host my favorite annual concert, and throw the most action packed fundraiser that has ever existed.
Raymond Bobgan is the Executive Artistic Director or CPT and a 2014 fellowship recipient for music composition. His compositions may be the closest to Uno Lady’s musical style that I have come across. I love this because we make similar music in opposite ways.
Last but not least is my new feisty friend, Faye Hargate! Faye is a performer, installation artist, educator and director at CPT. Check out her video below.
You can check out the rest of the videos here.
Ps. The final report for my fellowship is almost finished. I’ll make sure to share and post when I am done.
The Creative Workforce Fellowship is a program of the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC). The Fellowship program is supported by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture(CAC).
