“creativity keeps the world alive, yet, everyday we are asked to be ashamed of honoring it, wanting to live our lives as artists. i’ve carried the shame of being a ‘creative’ since i came to the planet; have been asked to be something different, more, less my whole life. thank spirit, my wisdom is deeper than my shame, and i listened to who i was. i want to say to all the creatives who have been taught to believe who you are is not enough for this world, taught that a life of art will amount to nothing, know that who we are, and what we do is life. when we create, we are creating the world. remember this, and commit.” –Nayyirah Waheed
"See. Speak. Feel." is a show about heart, courage, and the ripple effect artists send through our world. Now in its fourth year, "See. Speak. Feel." highlights the work of visual artists and performers in the D.C. metro area.
Past shows have represented the work of about 20 performers and visual artists each year in events that sold out well before their opening nights. "See. Speak. Feel." has been featured in East of the River Magazine, The Washington Afro American, and OnTheComeUp.com as well as several other blogs. The show has returned to its home at the Anacostia Arts Center following a hiatus in 2017.
Event director Tyece Wilkins is an award-winning writer, speaker, and spoken word artist who serves as the voice behind www.TwentiesUnscripted.com. Through "See. Speak. Feel." and everything she creates, Tyece hopes to spark people to connect to the best, bravest, and boldest parts of themselves.
