OLCDC named 2017 Knight Arts Challenge finalist

OLCDC has been named a finalist in the national Knight Arts Challenge, which seeks ideas in Miami, Detroit, Akron, and St. Paul from entrants that seek to bring their communities together through the arts. OLCDC's entry aims to inspire the next generation of creatives through an artist residency where local poets of color work with middle school poetry & music students to write, perform and record new works.

The project was submitted with support from Shameka “Poetry” Thomas, The ADMIT Program, the Arts Academy of Excellence and Dr. Steve Gallon III (MDCPS District 1 School Board Member) and was one of 2,500+ ideas submitted overall, one of 276 finalists selected nationally and 107 finalists selected from Miami. Winners, who will share $2.5 million, will be announced in December.
