Artist Statement

I am an actress,  author, visual artist, director, and activist. I use my gifts to inspire young people to reach for their dreams, no matter the circumstances they face. I am  passionate about telling the stories of people who don't have a strong voice in our society. Theatre is one of my love languages, and I hope to continue acting, directing, and learning more about the craft throughout my life. I aspire to use the  platform’s that are available to me  in a way that sheds light and awareness on issues such as racism, mental health, educational systems, and female empowerment.

- Artist in Residence Fall 2020 -


Mia is an artist enveloped in her environment. She is inspired by what’s around her and both materially and conceptually responds to it through her creations. Working in upcycled fashion, photography, and creative direction, as well as the occasional collage, Mia sets an intention in using already existing and secondhand materials to express herself. Outside of the artist-scape, Mia invests in understanding sustainable food systems and sovereignty, community self-determination, and low waste living. Mia is excited to get to know and share love with the community of Hope Village and to create relationships that outlive her residency.

You can view her work digitally through her portfolio at https://freak.myportfolio.com/ as well as at her Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/fr3ak.ish/

This workshop is for any kind of time-based performance: music, dance, theater, puppetry, spoken word. If you need a deadline to begin, deadlines to work up to a public performance, or could use some perspective on what you are making, this is it; this is for you.

Fieldwork is a place and time for performing artists to learn about their work, develop their ability to give feedback, and build a community of artistic peers. You will get responses to what you are making in a way that respects the intent of the work and allows you to discover your own solutions. For some more information on Fieldwork: https://www.thefield.org/programs/fieldwork

Philippa Kaye facilitates. A choreographer and performer, she has facilitated Fieldwork workshops in New York City and attended The Field conference in Portland with the plan of starting a Detroit network site. She will introduce and hold participants to the simple and effective Fieldwork guidelines. This group will meet six times; on Thursdays from 5:30-7:30PM. The space will be open and available for warm-up/rehearsal at 4:30.

Cost is $45 for the full session. https://www.artful.ly/store/events/19859

Flower Creep Project/ Ongoing

- Community art project -

conceived by Laura Quattrocchi

Flower Creep is originally the ongoing invitation to draw flowers on the walls and floor of our Corner Studio by the local passers by, visitors, workers, travelers, etc that stop by our space. The concrete floor was  eventually covered by a wood sprung floor but the power of the action rests underneath. The action was originally conceived as a christening of the new art/performance space by the love of the community.  

Recently the invitation was extended locally to the fence of the Hope Village Farmers Market.

Laura ( one of our founders here at Andy) is interested in changing perception of space by bringing people together trough art actions. She's planning on having her Grand Flower Project Finale in the spring of 2020.
