Born from our undying belief in the divine healing powers of arts and wellness, this festival is meant to educate, enlighten, and empower people in pain. Through arts and wellness, this series of self-love short films teach people how to improve their relationship with self and turn breakdowns into breakthroughs.
6 Creative Geniuses
3 Months of Empowerment
A Leading Man carefully handpicked 6 Creative Geniuses with powerful empathy, passionate bounce-back stories and an undeniable devotion to their art. We built a production team tailored to each artist to help them manifest their vision to produce brilliant performances. With talents ranging from comedy to martial arts, dancing to acting, and of course music, each production is sure to be unique in their own way.
From February through May, each month will feature two performers. During this time, the artist and their team will be showcased in a plethora of ways; this festival is about everyone involved including those behind the scenes.
February 5 - February 27
March 12 - April 3
April 16 - May 8
May 14 - May 29
The S.O.U.L. Arts Festival is interactive. There will be pre- ad post-performance workshops, interviews, and talkbacks. The audience will have opportunities to showcase their work before the film screenings too because we know that creative geniuses exist on both sides of the screen.
A Leading Man is committed to helping artists create multiple sources of income, making connections with those who need help, and creating an environment that is completely inclusive.
Our target audience is aged 15-35 years of age. Why you ask?
"Most teenagers have experienced some degree of stress during this pandemic- whether it's missing friends, or more serious stressors like a parent losing a job, someone getting sick of an unstable home life." -Victoria Freier MSN, RN-BC of Healthy Driven
This festival is for those who were muted during the past election; this festival is for those who were called the lost generation; this festival is for young adults; this festival is for YOU.
