Join us for another exciting Family ARTSventures public performance from the CAC on Saturday, February 15 at 1:00 pm at the Dog River Library, 6100 GA-5 in Douglasville. Our “Family ARTSVentures” performances enthrall all ages and are the perfect option for a weekend family outing. The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC) presents free community performances to connect us all in cultural appreciation and support education curriculum. This February, come listen and bounce to the expressive rhythms presented by J’miah Nabawi.
“There’s Rhythm in the Telling” is an interdisciplinary arts-based presentation reflective of the story-dance-musical folktale drama of Africa and its diaspora. Through storytelling and “mmoguo” (recreational folktales, games, and song) the program moves through interactive stories that will include highlighting African American history connected to Georgia’s history in honor of Black History Month. J’miah Nabawi will use various hand-held percussion instruments such as claves, tambourines, shekere and more. He will cross language boundaries with English, Twi, Yoruba, Spanish and French, uniting all people through more than words. Audience participation will be inescapable as stories come to life with a joyful noise. Come ready to play to learn and to learn how to play!
Mark your calendars for our following Family ARTSventures in March as Ah Surely Irish Music & Dance perform at the Douglas County Library on March 28 at 10:30 am. Follow our website @ artsdouglas.org and social media for event updates and tantalizing sneak-peaks.
