Beat Making Lab
Join Pierce on a journey – from being the youngest professor in the Music-department at UNC-Chapel Hill, to travelling the globe with PBS and winning an Emmy-award; while learning how to make better beats, and a better world!
From Racism to Afrofuturism
An in-depth look at race as a cultural construct, this multi-media presentation grapples with the question of a post-racial America, and explores the redemptive, healing and emancipatory power of music and poetry.
Not your typical Starbucks diversity training, Shape Change is a creative collaboration exploring dynamic communication and solidarity building through the arts. Led by Professor, musician and filmmaker Pierce Freelon, elements of this WokeShop have been shaped by Pierce’s radical grassroots community work across four continents. Inspired by the words of science fiction writer Octavia Butler, Shape Change invites participants to become sculptors – to tell stories, foster empathy and co-create a better world.
