A Visit To 901 Arts

901September 19, 2013 – Segment 3

We pay a visit to 901 Arts, a community-based youth arts center dedicated to providing art and music programs to the children and teens of the Better Waverly neighborhood. We hear the voices of young people involved in the visual and performing arts, as well as their instructors and parents, about what it means to have this center in their neighborhood.

We hear from parent Akeelah Stokes Bey, 901 Arts Director Sarah Tooley, drum instructor Wayne Johnson, singers Aniyah Walker and Taleah Edwards, and drummers Renee Anderson, Simone Edwards, Dimaun Coleman, Malachi Goodridge, Uriah Jackson, Dalin Haleem, Daja Haleem, Montré Hill, and Derrick Johnson.

This coming Friday, September 20, 901 Arts will be hosting their fourth annual Fish Fry. It is a fundraising dinner, silent auction, and community event that celebrates 901 Arts. The event will be taking place at 901 Arts, 901 Montpelier St, from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. For more information, go to www.901arts.org.
