Creating from the HeART: Cultivating Our Beloved Community

Our Creating from the HeART: Cultivating Our Beloved Community event will bring the Bridgeport community together around the healing of urban and racial trauma through artistic and poetic self-expression. The event will feature leading industry experts, Bridgeport-based artists and poets, and artwork produced by our Urban Scholars students. Attendees will hear from our incredible Keynote, Cey Adams, founding creative director of Def Jam Recordings who will share his journey as an artist.

As part of the event, the youth participating in our Urban Scholars Program will design and complete a community mural in Bridgeport, and a film documentary will capture the process. Leadership sponsors will be recognized in the film.
