AAMP Mentor – Shelby Cohen

Workshop: “Nurturing Spaces for Learning and Connection”

Shelby CohenSaxophonist, Multi-Instrumentalist, Artist, Community Organizer

In this workshop, we will explore together how to create more inclusive spaces for music and art-making. Sharing from each of our own unique experiences, we will discuss what resources or tools we have discovered that have helped us in our artistic journeys and what barriers we want to break down. With a healing-informed mindset, we will look at some of the emotional and physical needs of individuals that can be taken into consideration when setting up spaces and events for musical exploration.
