Chicago, IL., January 31, 2017The Arts of Humanity (The AofH) via its new AofH Production division announced today details surrounding The FAHF Awards television debut, premiering on February 9, 2017 at 8:30pm on CAN-TV and YouTube. A simultaneous online watch party will take place on Twitter and Facebook using #FAHFAwards.


Every year, The Arts of Humanity shines the spotlight on fun, passionate, and talented humanitarians known as Creative Do-Gooders at Fashion and Arts Humanity Fete (FAHF). The FAHF Awards destroys the all too familiar shallow perception of the arts industries while taking a more intimate, yet exciting approach to learn how non-profits, individuals, and businesses use the arts to advance human welfare. Infused with arts entertainment, performances, and special guest appearances, The FAHF Awards will warm your hearts in the most relatable, yet amazingly entertaining way.

Actor and model Tony B. will commence the 2016 celebrations at JBTV Studios where some of Chicagoland’s most prominent  influencers hit the stage to celebrate creative humanitarianism including Candace Jordan, Natalie Martinez, Andrea NaTay, Ted Reilly, Asiaha Butler, Renita Manley-Garrett, Angie Gaffney, Omari Garrett , and Whitney Reynolds, all honoree presenters.  Accomplished do-gooders from the varied arts across America including Young Chicago Authors, composer Megan Cavallari, musician Add-2, The Whitney Reynolds Show, designer Sarah Burroughs of anne b designs, designer Chelli Harms of CHC, author Antonetta Maxwell, and choreographer VaShanna Kimp of Veve’s Dance Company  will be honored on stage. Electrifying performances from burlesque rock band The Fox and The Hounds, Emon Lauren, Add-2, and endearing youth dance routines from Veve’s Dance Company round out The FAHF Awards 2016. The FAHF Awards is produced and directed by Renita Manley-Garrett.
