Destiny invites you to our next panel discussion Creating Connections Series: Culturally Responsive Teaching. We’ll hear from artists, educators, and activists in our community who work to engage people in creative practice that recognizes the strength, resiliency and innate creativity of BIPOC communities. Joining this discussion is Maddy ‘MADlines’ Clifford (writer, musician, and educator), Krea Gomez (Director of Local Initiatives, Young Women’s Freedom Center), Mika Lemoine (performer, facilitator), and Rashidi Omari (Director of the Destiny Arts Youth Performance Company).
Conceived in the summer of 2020, Destiny’s Creating Connection Series has provided a virtual forum to discuss issues and events impacting our community– youth protests, consent, and artists as essential workers. Each session begins with a grounding or embodied practice led by Destiny staff, youth, or teaching artist.
Creating Connections is hosted on Zoom and streamed to Facebook Live. Register to attend the Zoom webinar and follow us on Facebook to get notified when we go live!

Destiny Arts Center and Pixar Animation Studios present a virtual movie screening of Soul and Q&A with film editor Robert Grahamjones.
Soul tells the story of a New York jazz pianist who, after landing the gig of a lifetime, suddenly finds himself trapped in a strange land between Earth and the Great Before. Released in December 2020, Soul is Pixar’s first film to feature a Black protagonist.
We’re thrilled to host this festive evening and conversation. The Q&A will begin at 6:30 PM and the film will be available for registrants to stream from 12 PM – 10 PM.
As we approach the screening date, registrants will receive follow-up communications prompting you to make a Disney Debut account to stream the film, and a Zoom webinar link to access the Q&A.
