Art Series

Welcome to CSHH's very first Art Series hosted by David Denton, MPH. This Arts Series is a collaboration between CSHH and Emory Arts, to help educate and empower Emory students through performative and visual arts to think critically about the intersection of art and Public Health to help improve interpretation, and communication of health-related issues and a way to mobilize communities.  

Host David Denton, MPH, a graduate of the Rollins School of Public Health, is the instructor of “Health 385-4: Arts, Community, & Public HLTH” which was designed to help students understand the use of arts-based methods to better create public health messaging and as creative tools for communicating ones lived experiences.

Laugh A Lot? LOL

featuring Lavender Laughs

Lavender Laughs is a grassroots open mic organization with the mission to empower women and LGBTQIA+ communities in comedy. In an industry still heavily dominated by straight, white, cisgender men, Lavender laughs creates opportunities for and by women and LGBTQIA+ community members to make way for new perspectives and new art that is inclusive, accepting, endearing, rebellious, unapologetic, responsible, surviving and thriving.

This event is in collaboration with Emory Pride which is Emory's undergraduate LGBTQ social group. They hope to foster a community among queer students at Emory and host cute and fun events in order to create that community. Come to watch Atlanta's best Women and LGBTQ+ Comedians.

A Meeting of the Minds

featuring ManKind Music Academy

ManKind Music Academy is a Harlem-based Hip Hop duo consisting of Nathaniel "N8!" Gasque and Brian "Sciryl" Henry. Together as ManKind, they are in the constant pursuit of Unapologetic Black Excellence. They strive to create art that is both true and living, and capable of evolving over time. ManKind is more than music. It's a way of Life. It's a community. The ManKind Experience is about using popular culture as a vehicle to make social commentary and ultimately create dialogue. The themes of our projects, whether it be wrestling, religion, video games, or space travel, are not means unto themselves. It’s never really about those topics. They use them to address inequality, race relations, socioeconomics, sexual politics, and the effects they have on humanity and our community.

This event is in collaboration with the Black Student Alliance. Come to watch student artists explore black creativity through poetry, spoken word, and songs that emphasize black love, black joy, and community.
