    Artist-in-Residence

    For four weeks each spring, Kennedy Heights Arts Center hosts an Artist-in-Residence with support from the Ohio Arts Council. This program connects communities with accomplished Ohio visual and performing artists in a range of disciplines.

    THANK YOU to everyone who participated with Joshua Brown from Inlet Dance Company (Cleveland, OH), our 2017 Artist-in-Residence! The residency ran from April 4th – April 29th.  All activities were free thanks to support from the Ohio Arts Council and Kennedy Heights Community Council.

    During the residency, Joshua collaborated with a wide range of participants to engage us in creative movement, building new relationships, and emphasizing new appreciation and understanding of modern dance. One of our primary goals was to help build confidence in our participants, and to encourage their expression through dance and movement. We definitely embraced the JOY of dancing – everyone can do it!
