Using the arts to heal + empower! Performance, workshops and a marketplace! Come witness the wonder of the Chrysalis.

Melanated Chrysalis reframes the metamorphosis of the caterpillar in the context of one person’s journey. Being a caterpillar is only the beginning. It’s time to break out of the chrysalis that existed only to make you stronger. You are ready. Evolution requires death, but leaves you with grace.

ARTS WELLNESS WORKSHOPS (April 15-18) encourage courageous insistence through art. Donation-based workshops highlight health/wellness in the context of the arts. Local artists of different mediums

  • "People think that because you go through certain things ... that that's who you are. It's not necessarily who you are, but it's also not something to run away from. Movement takes the truth out of that. It funnels it into beauty."

    Ashé Arts Executive Artistic Director, Sadé M. Jones creates a wrap around experience for you. It starts with the workshops to get you the creative tools you can use in daily life. No matter who you are. Then you get to experience it in her version of theatre for the mind-body-soul. Althewhile, communing with others in an unspoken depth of beauty, art and culture.
