"I always go the extra mile because you don’t know when that opportunity comes to you. You never half-do something. You always go full force. It’s always better to be prepared."
We want to be clear. Create Birmingham is an anti-racism organization. We strive, entrepreneur by entrepreneur, to build an inclusive and just economy in which Black business ownership is equitably resourced and purposefully nurtured. We intentionally spotlight and celebrate Black thought, contribution, and achievement in the arts and all creative work, and we will continue to seek out ways to amplify Black voices. We believe that all humans are born with a spirit of creativity…
Creative work, at its core, is not about an ultimate finished product. It’s about authentic engagement with audiences, customers or clients. It’s about an expression that cannot be contained. And it’s about human connection and shared experience.
What is Create Birmingham doing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic?
"We crave connection, and I think that is what theatre is all about — connecting stories to audiences and, more importantly, finding the common experiences and emotions that connect us all."
