Our featured performer in January will be Cedric Hameed. Cedric is a fierce arts advocate and believes that local, national, and global change can be accomplished through expression. A native of Schenectady, N.Y, Cedric grew accustomed to using words as an escape from his harsh realities. He never realized it would be the blueprint to creating a life-changing poetry workshops. “Poetry saved my life, literally! I see the world in metaphors and similes. And, when you can see in the abstract you can create. I can see the world we can all create!”
