The Black Women’s Arts Festival presents
All People’s Open Mic featuring Wings of Worth
Come share your writing or spoken word performance while networking with select and surprise featured artists and friends of Philadelphia’s 8th Annual Black Women’s Arts Festival! All respectful persons are welcome to participate. The event will include a wonderful performance by the acclaimed ensemble Wings of Worth:
Wings of Worth endeavors to inspire and uplift women of all ages, hues, socio-economic and cultural backgrounds to be their best “whole” selves. Founded by Jaz and Adriann “The Pen” Bautista in January 2011, Wings of Worth was established February 6, 2011, upon which the vision, mission and goals for W.O.W. were disseminated to the body of Poets which encompass W.O.W.
“Hanging on Threads of Sanity”, is the first in a series of Spoken Poem-Plays which exposes unspoken often-worn and lived, emotions that scream silently from the depths of she-heroes everywhere, longing to be set free. These dark life-altering emotions are the threads that both keep us stretched far apart and bind us together……but then when life and circumstance intersect, it is there that we realize all that we truly share. And it teaches us to re-connect as Sisters and learn to spread our wings for and with each other.
Wings of Worth members are: Naila Mattison, Ebony Malaika Collier, Adriann “The Pen” Bautista, Lina “Alllisss” Baker, Aziza Kinteh, Angel Hogan, Christina “Khrystle” Atkinson, L’Oreal “Elle” Chrisp-Seels, Miracle Brown, Jaz, and Lynn Blue.
