An Evening with the Creative Class

Duane Cyrus presents An Evening with the Creative Class April 6, 2016 at 7pm in Studio 322 in the Coleman Building, University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

An Evening with the Creative Class is a series of presentations on the arts with a panel of local and guest artists sharing their talent in an extraordinary evening of community, networking, and discussion!  The event will take place on the campus of UNCG, located at 1408 Walker Avenue; Greensboro, NC in the Dance Department, Coleman Building Studio 322. The theme of this first creativity in the arts series is, “Black Bodies: Representation, Gender, Sexuality.”

An Evening with the Creative Class is a unique opportunity for audiences to experience and learn more about the talented people that help drive the artistic and creative sector of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region. In an informal setting, audiences will gain exposure to and learn about a range of creative processes. There will be an excerpt of Duane Cyrus’ work "Chronicle of the Masked Faggot"; display of works by choreographer Amelia Byrd, visual artist Joseph Johnson, and film maker Jonathan Garris. Additional artists may be announced.

Audience members will learn about the artists who are exploring the evening’s theme with their work. The innovative evening will feature performances, casual conversation, and a moderated panel discussion.  The event will be moderated by a guest presenter with at least three featured artists and scholars from different backgrounds sharing their work. Audience members are encouraged to experience, ask questions and participate! Come meet the people that make our region so vibrant!

This event is open to the general public,  aspiring artists, interested art patrons, professional artists, working artists, and anyone wanting a backstage pass to how art is created.

The event is free and open to the public

An Evening with the Creative Class is developed by Duane Cyrus, associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and reflects a commitment to bringing high quality and unique cultural experiences to the Triad region since 2006.

  1. My cousin’s birthday dinner party last weekend was truly fabulous. We visited one of iconic lofty spaces for the party. Were astounded to see all party arrangements. Everything had a royal look and food was awesome.
