Thought-Provokers: Far North Dallas

Dallas has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Far North Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Through our live performances, I hope to start a dialogue that challenges, inverts or problematizes injustice and inequity. I hope that through the audience and the people’s interactions with me and my art, I am able to start talking about social issues that need to be addressed. Read more>>
