Jameson Freeman and Nichola Hays hosted a wonderful group of bright and talented young students as well as board members, volunteers and mentors from First Star on Saturday, December 7th at The Arts Club of Washington. The students were given a private tour of the historic building (the former home of President James Monroe), enjoyed a delicious lunch made by the club's executive chef, and engaged in a theatrical workshop. Artistic Director Freeman asked the students to choose a character to play from a list of roles based on a brief description of the character. As each group and each scene then read the characters' lines, more about the characters were revealed, and the entire group then had a discussion about all the roles we embody in our daily lives (sibling, friend, professional), and how those roles adapt and change. Some students then shared original poetry and even an original rapThe , and others sang some of their favorite songs. The FABUM team was incredibly excited to have the opportunity to work and connect with these young people and First Star. As an organization, we look forward to expanding our efforts to promote self-actualization and strength through artistic activities and self-expression.
FABUM celebrated two years since its founding and held a preview of its upcoming, 3rd Dolce Revolution Project at The Arts Club!
