Join Creciendo Juntos on October 20th, for a movement-based workshop with He’aven Fleming Bryant, a Charlottesville-based choreographer and dancer.

He’aven will be talking about her journey and passion for dancing and doing a dance demonstration that will get everyone moving and grooving.

This program is part of the CHISPA (Charlottesville Initiative for Social Practice Arts) series of virtual artist lectures and workshops centered around the idea that creative freedom and cultural expression are at the core of social movements and change.

The program is designed for and by Latinx youth and youth of color in Charlottesville to provide a space for Charlottesville’s Latinx youth/youth of color to engage with young, talented and distinguished artists of color that are using their creativity and talent to make positive social change in their communities all over the country.

The CHIPSA series is sponsored in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
