Black Arts Development

Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre Inc. has created a space for African, Caribbean, and Black citizens in our community to tell their stories through script writing and acting.

We are excited to bring to you the Black Arts Development (BAD) Program.

The BAD Program focuses on creating spaces for Black artists by supporting professional and emerging artists to learn, grow, and show their art. The BAD Program was created and designed with Black artists in mind by providing emerging artists the tools and practical knowledge to take the next step in their artistic journey.

We invite the community members regardless of their level of arts training into our programs. The first cohort is open to 18 to 30 years of age. Enrollment opens now for acting and script writing workshops starting on June 5 and 19, 2021.

Please consider applying or sharing the information below with your colleagues.

Cost: Free. A $100 commitment fee will be required from successful candidates at the beginning of the workshop. This will be refunded upon successful completion.
