Self Discovery: This Is Me
SATURDAY, AUGUST 26 · 2 PM EDT
INSPIRED presents This is Me, a FREE event celebrating self-discovery through the Arts at CEED. Join Jo-Ann Wilson and accomplished musicians along with new artists, poets, and dancers. It’s free, and no registration is required.
This is Me is an original production celebrating authenticity and self-love. This dancers, and inspirational speakers with combined careers spanning 50 years. Performers include accomplished musicians —some who have worked with Bob Marley, Susan Tedeschi, Wyclef Jean, and others — and up-and-coming artists and students. Food will be provided by Island Empanada.
The event is hosted by CEED and presented by INSPIRED, an organization dedicated to helping children and young adults — especially those from underserved communities — achieve success through the arts. According to its founder, Jo-Ann Wilson, LMSW, the purpose of the show is to encourage confidence and challenge negative self-talk. “We are not the sum of our past mistakes or the balance in our bank accounts,” she said. “This is Me is an invitation for self-exploration, self-celebration, and making connections.”
In case of rain, the concert will be held indoors at the Washington Lodge.
This is Me is partially funded by the New York State Council of the Arts, administered by the Huntington Arts Council, Inc. and the County of Suffolk. CEED is located at 287 South Country Road, Brookhaven NY 11719. They can be reached at (631) 803-6780.
