A DIFFERENT KIND OF VIBE


 

"We help you make your mark in a world that would otherwise paint a picture of you as invisible, voiceless, and undeserving."

Scribes & Vibes celebrates diversity and inclusiveness through the lens of literature, spoken word, instrumentation, performance, and fine art. Our integrated arts programs are designed to shape thoughts, build a sense of community, and open the door for meaningful dialogue while knocking down the walls that constrain commonality.

Heeding to the aesthetics of the New Negro Movement, Scribes & Vibes aspires to render a renewed sense of racial pride, cultural self-expression, economic independence, and progressive politics by providing an impregnable platform for underrepresented communities to voice their feelings, ideas, and concerns. Our open mic platform mixes social commentary with collaborative arts integration, to draw attention to community needs while increasing recreational reading and creative expression. Scribes & Vibes community-based arts programs offer an array of opportunities to help the marginalized color outside the lines in efforts to erase hate and breakdown color barriers. Long story short, we help you make your mark in a world that would otherwise paint a picture of you as invisible, voiceless, and undeserving.

Scribes & Vibes evolved on the ethos of "a safe space for the invisible to be seen and the voiceless to be heard is a well-deserved step for all walks of life." When you experience the Scribes & Vibes vibe, you will come to see that with a little art in your heART, it is much easier to establish common grounds.

#THINKBEYONDTHEBOOKS


"LIBRARY OUT LOUD is a Scribes & Vibes public library programming initiative. Our aim is to connect your library to the community and to encourage patrons to think of the library beyond books. "


#EXPERIENCETHELIBRARY

"We teach librarians and library support staff how to think beyond the books and how to utilize programming to reinforce the library as a community locale."

Scribes & Vibes has developed special events, storytimes, summer reading programs, art exhibits, author readings, book discussions, classes / informational programs,  contests, movie programs, and/or musical programs to increase traffic and circulation at public libraries in Rockdale (Conyers, GA), DeKalb (Lithonia, GA, Stonecrest, GA, Decatur, GA), and Pike (Zebulon, GA) counties. The Scribes & Vibes LIBRARY OUT LOUD initiative is deeply rooted in sumpreme verve and the keen ability to secure talent, identify funding resources, and provide library assessment tools to foster goodwill for public library branches.

"We're bringing the arts to Main Street America."

Scribes & Vibes illustrates the arts from an economic perspective. To drive local economies, we steer community-based arts programs and public art initiatives that transform commercial districts into people-centered public spaces. Albeit, enhancing the physical and visual aesthetics of historic buildings with murals or accelerating access to performing, literary, and visual arts, we create an inclusive and inviting atmosphere by transforming public spaces into centers for the arts.

Derived from the notion of "We're bringing the arts to Main Street America," Scribes & Vibes aspires to position LIVE on Main Street as a financial tool for both the local arts scene and the downtown business district. Our goal is to create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators while providing a platform for diverse communities to establish common ground.
