Community Talent Showcase: PushPlay

HP-Banner-PUSHPLAY-1050x407

There is no better way to show the creativity of the community than to create a platform to show its ability. Organized by Toni Eubanks, Push/Play was a monthly event that opened up just such an opportunity and the community embraced it. Whether music, poetry, storytelling, or visual arts, local artists presented their work and brought the community together to share their skills. “It’s not what you know, it’s who you are willing to get to know.”

GOALS
Create a platform for local artists to share their skills and creativity
Build community relationships through the arts
Celebrate the vibrancy of the neighborhood
