Thank you for attending Breath & Imagination! Roland Hayes was influenced and inspired by his parents and teachers encouraging him to be true to himself as an artist. This kind of mentor-ship can be found within our communities but rarely gets the spotlight of more formal institution-based education. These individuals find ways to unlock the potential in our youth and challenge the barriers of self-doubt and socio-economic limitations.
We want to take this opportunity to recognize the people in our lives that allow us to move to a place of breath and imagination. Tell us the story of the person that helped shape you – whether in your classroom, in your church, in your neighborhood – shout them out in the comments.
