This brand new poetry podcast began as a fun experiment between two like-minded artists who share a passion for music, verse and prose, one another's company, and the occasional Cote du Rhone. Intended to cover a variety of inspiring and compelling themes, it begins with pieces devoted to New York City, and continues on to some of the great male speeches of Shakespeare. Composer and conductor Daniela Candillari creates an original score set to recitation performed by Theatre and Film actress Kelli Ruttle.
Fine Acts bridges human rights and art to instigate social change.
We curate, commission and promote contemporary art with purpose. We bring together activists and artists from across the globe to work on collaborative art projects.
We believe that art is one of the best ways to explain and improve our society. Art can be transcending, connecting us to issues on a deeper, emotional level. Art can create a visceral response and forge action from empathy.
By producing and supporting socially engages art, and by championing it into public and cultural spaces, we aim to raise awareness, trigger action, and foster greater support for human rights campaigns.
"I create works illustrating that within the boundaries of culture, politics and self-expression there are possibilities for individuality - not dwelling on the limitations, but what can be utilized within them." - Joey Foster Ellis
eL Seed’s intricate calligraphic compositions call not only on the words and their meaning but also on their movement, which ultimately lures the viewer into a different state of mind. Working primarily with subjects that seem contradictory, eL Seed’s art reflects the reality of mankind and the world we live in today. eL Seed installed his work on public spaces, galleries and institutions on every continent. From the streets of Paris or New York, to the Favelas of Rio Di Janeiro or the slums of Cape Town, his contemporary approach aims to bring people, culture and generations together.
