Soul Power: Building Blocks Project
Soul Power Productions is a non-profit production company and international organization that strives to bring creative, artistic, and technological resources to Charleston communities lacking in arts advocacy and education. Founded in 2017 by Cody Dixon and many local musicians, artists, students, and business owners. Soul Power was formed with the sole purpose of bringing educational and career oriented opportunities to children and students interested in the arts who wouldn’t otherwise be able to pursue an artistic career.
A partner with Awendaw Green’s non profit project Swamp Sessions led by Danielle Howle Soul Power has a diverse group of inherited workshops, retreats, and programs designed to invigorate Charleston’s eclectic art scene as well as provide a positive safe space for people of all ages to find their passion for the arts.
Soul Power’s debut outreach project of its own is called Building Blocks. With a recent connection with IQRA muslim bilingual academy in Dakar, Senegal Cody will be traveling there and teaching music and production to the arts department of the academy, but we can’t go empty handed. That’s why our first Building Blocks fundraising campaign is to raise $15,000 by June to build a studio at the IQRA for their choir and arts interested students.
We have a goal of $10,000 and we would appreciate any help you can provide whether that be donating time, money, equipment or connections with someone you think would be sympathetic with our cause and wants to support. Over the next few months we will be holding a series of pop up markets, shows, an album release and launching an online marketplace where local artists can sell their merch and donate the proceeds to bring awareness to Soul Power and Building Blocks.
Any contribution is a huge help and it is appreciated by all of us at Soul Power as well as the children of the IQRA Muslim Bilingual Academy!
