What’s Up Down South with Ted Efremoff, Fri, May 1, 2015 at 12:30pm
Senior Associate Director Bill Ferris will introduce us to Ted Efremoff, an Assistant Professor at Greensboro College where he teaches art, administers The Citizen Scholar Lecture Series and directs LIFT Gallery.
Ted will be talking about The Healing Blues Project, an initiative that pairs storytellers experiencing homelessness with blues musicians to create collaborative songs. As cultural producers, storytellers receive an honorarium for their story and share copyright of the song with the musicians. The Healing Blues Project has released an album and works to raise funds for The Interactive Resource Center, a day center for the homeless community of Greensboro.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
