THROUGH OUR EYES CONCERT SERIES
The “Through Our Eyes Concert Series” is geared toward presenting conflict resolution strategies that address the points of stress and trauma in society and the ways in which they contribute to social change. The concert series “Through Our Eyes” challenges the systemic oppressive systems of Missouri that breed violence, trauma, and poverty by spreading love and hope through the visual and performing arts. Students of HEAL Center for the Arts’s “Point of View” and “Bird Seeds” Jazz ensembles will have the opportunity to study the historical impact of overt racism in their communities. Such trauma informed training will stimulate and inform artistic expressions that will encourage healing from both internal and external conflict.
Students will be trained to express themselves through instrumental and vocal music, photography, and videography. Students will also be trained on how to maintain their art through marketing strategies and business acumen.
