Body and Soul is a series of interdisciplinary workshops is led by Dr. Norman Cornett, and features renowned jazz musicians and visual artists ranging from Branford Marsalis to Sue Adams. The series encourages creative thinking through an experiential approach to the arts. This alternative method includes listening to music and viewing art with unconventional techniques, writing reflections, and going on cultural excursions. Participants will also be given the opportunity to engage in discussions and sit down one-on-one with guest artists for a "dialogic" session about their creative vision. No background or previous knowledge in the arts is required.

Creative Boost is a dynamic cultural space where art, language, literature and music converge. With an international faculty and state-of-the-art studio, its main goal is to stimulate and facilitate creative expression.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
