The Skinny: May 6, 2018
Headlines & Sunday Announcements
Tuesday, May 8, 6:30-8:30pm
In a well-known study by the Equality of Opportunity Project, Charlotte ranks dead last out of America’s 50 largest cities in the area of economic mobility. While education, family stability, career readiness, and other strategies are critical, could it be that the arts are an untapped resource for addressing upward mobility?
How are the arts crucial in holistic development and educational success? How could the arts help us come to terms with our history of segregation and exclusion while giving us new ways of imagining the future together? How might arts organizations, networks, and advocates lead the way in providing opportunity for those who lack social capital? Join us for this evening of stimulating conversation and new possibilities.
Saturday, May 19, 4-6pm
Warehouse is honored to be the host venue for this inspiring evening of storytelling featuring people sharing their stories of overcoming mental illness through creative expression such as essay, poetry, comedy, and music, all aimed at ending the stigma surrounding mental illness. A gallery exhibit, resources, and vendors will also be on hand.
This is a great opportunity to mark National Mental Health Awareness Month. Tickets are $25 and are on sale now.
