Create Freedom’s 3rd Annual Fundraising Celebration
Beginning a Journey:
Having relocated to Indianapolis 14 years ago I have since made many connections with the arts however none have been as long-lasting AS I would have liked. My involvement with the arts in the Indianapolis community and with students at IUPUI lead me to many discussions about what to do if “I want to dance but there’s no place for adults to drop in to a real dance class.” These conversations fed my interest in creating a space for adults who love to dance, maybe they desired to perform, and maybe they just wanted to get back to dancing after so many years away from the studio. Either way I was eager to offer the safe space to pursue dance “as you please.”
The mission of Create Freedom Arts Projects is to inspire creativity, incite conversation, and inform the community. It is an opportunity and safe space for novice and seasoned dance artists to develop their personal creative process. Create Freedom Arts Projects promotes mental health through dance to channel the whole self so dancers recognize that they are living artistic beings and not just a living being who does art. Through dance the artist can hold conversation with other dancers and the audience creating an experience that becomes a relationship where we share one another’s inner workings and cultivate the community in life and strengthen the community through dance as communication.
Create Freedom is creative landscape… Artists have the unique opportunity to share their experience with other members of the community and inspire creativity. Create Freedom is artistic vision… Artists and arts organizations produce music, theatre, dance, visual, and literary art to incite conversation. Create Freedom is community… Works created will be presented locally in an exchange that will stimulate, nourish, and inform the community.
Your support will help us meet minimal budgetary needs and steer us toward acquiring our own space in the community. Also, you will provide the means for us to form connections with other artists. RocketHub is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: funds from supporters for goods from me. It’s a “keep what I raise” funding mechanism: if I don’t reach my financial goal I get to keep what I raise.
Create Freedom Arts Projects is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Create Freedom Arts Projects must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
