I Sell the Shadow’s official launch is set to be the beginning of big changes in how creative artists and UN/NGO agencies work together to create a better world. On the 22nd of October 2014 at 06:30pm, be sure to be part of the revolution by attending the free launch at MIST in NYC.
I Sell the Shadow maintains a portfolio of creative artists ready to work on raising awareness for UN/NGO agencies, and facilitates the synergetic partnership of these two often very different worlds. Also providing weekend workshops and one-to-one consultations, I Sell the Shadow helps artists get paid for what they do best, all the while being a force for good in the world.
Supporters are out in force, including key representatives of the UN Focal Point on Youth, UN Education First, the UNFPA, Women Deliver, Trendy Tripping, Urban Word NYC, as well as Tony-award nominee Sahr Ngaujah, educator Toni Blackman, beatboxer Chesney Snow and youth activist Syed Mahmood Kazmi.
Music will be supplied by the ace Ethiopian-born New Yorker DJ Sirak of Africology, and Nigerian-American actor Gbenga Akinnagbe (best known for playing the murderous Chris Partlow in HBO’s incredible The Wire) will be talking about his t-shirt line Liberated People and the power that t-shirts have to make a change in people’s core beliefs.
Admission and viewing of performances is free, although we invite you to support the artists with a $25 VIP Networking ticket.
For this exciting event that looks to be a new beginning for socially-conscious entertainment, head down to MIST, at 46 West 116th Street (between 5th & Lennox). The event begins at 6:30pm and will run till 10:00pm.
