Send Us To Sedona!

We are DS Kinsel and Anqwenique!  Your friendly neighborhood artsy-fartsy friends.  Our work as artists has led us to work in communities.  We aim to help people streghthen thier creative approach to community challenges while also presenting high quality cultural experiences that mix hip-hop culture with classical arts.  

We have been invited to take part in an amazing artist opportunity that will  have great impact on our careers! , The inaugural Sedona Summer Colony is a new summer residency for artists and cultural managers.  This time will allow us to focus on ideas, new work, potential collaborations, or the germination of a project. Beneath that is the simple opportunity to get away from the familiar routine of Pittsburgh and find quiet contemplation and solitude in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It is inspired by the original colonies like Yaddo, MacDowell, Hambidge Center, Villa Montalvo, and the American Academy in Rome.  

YOUR DONATION will be used to support round trip travel and artists supplies and equipment needed for this experience.  The Sedona Summer Colony has agreed to sponsor all costs related to room/board, studio space, and meals.  

YOUR SUPPORT is important!  Help us reach this goal by July 3, 2016!  

Artists residencies are crucial to the development of professional artists.  Invited to the Sedona Summer Colony are over 100 fascinating creative people from around the world, we will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with the best creative minds across diciplines.   ANY SIZE DONATION WILL HELP US REACH OUR OVERALL GOAL!
