My two friends are doing some awesome stuff.
A couple months ago my friend Harry Shum Jr made a video with Buzzfeed entitled “if you are in a shell…” It’s this really cool art piece combining a bit of Harry’s history, a bit of voiceover, and a lot of paint. The message is about breaking out of your shell using dance as a vessel. Check it out:
Another friend Jenny Kita started a non-profit organization that gives children that have experienced trauma creative outlets through dance, art and music. They provide workshops for these kids and give them opportunities to immerse themselves in their own creativity and perhaps use that as a way to heal from their traumatic events.
They have joined forces and Jenny is putting on a live event full of great art, dance and music April 5, 2014. Harry and Jenny will be auctioning off the outfit worn in the “if you are in a shell…” video and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Creativity Heals non-profit.
Harry talks about it here:
