Join us for an evening under the stars with six artists using speaking as performance. Derrick C. BrownRay ChristianAnis MojganiAmanda TorresBuddy Wakefield, and Dame Wilburn will do things with words that move and inspire us.

Here Say gathers the country's top artists using speaking as performance for a series of creative roundtables and public performances in Metro Atlanta. From spoken word and storytelling to lectures and rap (and everything in between), Here Say invests in the development and cross pollination of this dynamic and democratic form--word and voice. To capture this three-day convening in the fall, AIR Serenbe commissions a local filmmaker to create an original short film about the meeting of the minds and mouths.


“Over the past five years, we have hosted residencies for numerous artists using speaking in some form in their work. Here Say is a way to continue supporting these artists individually while also bringing them together collectively. And to encourage them to keep doing that simple, yet incredibly bold act of speaking in front of a crowd---it is powerful; it changes lives.” -Brandon Hinman, Executive Director of AIR Serenbe

Here Say is funded in part by an Art Works Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
