Happy New Year: Call for Presenters, The DC Black Theater Fest & More

(Liberated Muse members Afi Makalani & Kevin Sabio at the 2010 RWA Author's Pavillion in Richmond, VA)

What Do You Want to Do Artistically In 2011?

New Year's Resolutions are always great because they encourage you to
plan to do things for the New Year that you may not have been able to
do in previous years. Do you have a song you want to write, a CD you
want to produce, a show you want to perform at? How about an visual art
exhibit-- is there a piece of work you want to showcase? A book you want
to write?
Share with us the projects you want to put
out there this year, folks you want to collaborate with or just mind
sets you are working on changing in 2011. Maybe we can collaborate or just support each other with positive energy, suggestions or opportunities to share. Click HERE to join the discussion.

CHISPA Call For Presenters

On Feb 17th Liberated Muse member Jessica Solomon (The Saartjie Project)
celebrates the first anniversary of her company's event, Chispa.
Taking place at the Atlas Theatre, Chispa will be part of INTERSECTIONS: A New America
Arts Festival
! In the spirit of the festival, Jessica is inviting the community
(Ahem.. you!) to continue to break
boundaries & create connections by presenting:




…in 360 seconds.
What is "Chispa": Chispa, meaning "spark"
in Spanish, was inspired by Pecha Kucha, a presentation format that emerged in
Japan as a way for architects to share their work. Variations of this format
have sprung up around the world, including the popular IgniteDC events.
