Chicago, IL., June 6, 2016 – As part of its efforts to expand into the digital space, The Arts of Humanity (AofH) announced today the premiere of The Arts of HumaniTEA, a new web series that features insight from humanitarians about trending and social issues. The teaser for the pilot season is available now on The AofH’s newly revamped YouTube channel. Part one of the first episode ” I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar, Maybe?” debuts Thursday June 9, at 1p.m. CT on YouTube. Subsequent episodes will focus on the hotly debated role of artists as activists and the intersection of politics and humanity.
“The Arts of HumaniTEA uses a round table discussion format where Do-Gooders ditch politically correct personas to delve unapologetically into controversial issues that question humanity,” states Renita Manley-Garrett, Executive Director of The AofH and Creator of The Arts of HumaniTEA. “The show’s guests, consisting of various artists, activists, and altruists, also reveal their unheard and sometimes shocking experiences that shape them as Do-Gooders.”
“In developing the show, we wanted to bring together a diverse cross-section of changemakers who would challenge and inspire each other to think outside of their respective worldviews. We hope this series will encourage a collaborative and creative approach to community problem solving and spark even more conversation and action offline,” said Kozi Kyles, Co-Executive Producer of The Arts of HumaniTEA.
