“The Arts of HumaniTEA”
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.
Filming for the show took place at Bar Louie at their Dearborne Station location in Chicago. “Thank you so much for allowing Bar Louie to share in your celebration of the Arts, ” said Amanda Woods, manager at Bar Louie. “The AofH has become a dear member of our family and we are honored to be associated with such an inspiring organization.”
“The Arts of HumaniTEA is a natural progression for The AofH. As we celebrate and propel creative humanitarianism, it is vital for us to meet our audience and supporters in the digital space as a social resource. And with many of our show’s guests being from creative industries, they offer a wide range of unique, fresh, and authentic perspectives on social issues, ” states Renita Manley-Garrett.
The Arts of Humanity (AofH) is a 501c3 organization that teaches, develops, and recognizes creative humanitarians. Learn more by visiting their website at www.TheAofH.org.
