Artists in Exploration
Story Labs
Workshops and readings for writers at every level push artists to develop an original voice, craft story and create characters that truthfully capture the human condition.
Actors, directors, and writers explore artistry behind and in front of the camera. We take the award winning work to local and national festivals and worldwide distribution.
Actors, directors, and writers take the Sowelu process outside of the classroom and workshops, exploring important theatrical works for local and regional audiences.
