Whether you want to check out some local art, learn how to get funding for your film project or kickstart your YouTube channel, we have got something for you.

Read on for more information and we hope to see you at one of our events soon!

Art Exhibit - Victory by Dr. Avery

Tuesday, May 22 at 6:00 pm

The show extends Dr. Avery's dissertation research, which denudes the unwitting silence of the black female choreographer by the dominant voice of society based on interminable perceptions of the black female body given America’s portrait of the black female in media, film and other art forms.

This body of work gives breath to the image of the black female post Marvel’s “Black Panther.”

Dr. Avery completed her doctoral journey and is presently freelancing as a teacher-education-consultant/pilates instructor.
