Local author, Ariana R Cherry will be speaking at the first annual Art in Equality Convention on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Savoy Recreation Center in Savoy, Illinois. It is a convention and film festival focusing on Equality for all: LGBTQ, all races, all religions, all sexes. “We are ALL human, let’s stop the hate. We will provide an environment that welcomes everyone with open minds and open hearts. We will embrace knowledge, love and understanding.”
The Art in Equality Convention will bring knowledge, love and understanding by showcasing special guest speakers, vendors and films from independent filmmakers. Other special guests include actor and former pro-wrestler, Bishop Stevens and Philo Barnhart – creator of Disney’s, “Ariel.”
Cherry will be giving a presentation titled, “A Normal Kind of Love,” which is performance art with both poetry and story-telling. She will be telling a true story about domestic abuse and her journey from darkness back into the light. Cherry will be presenting at 10:00 am that day.
Cherry is also the author of her epic poetic tale, “Only If,” and her most recent collection of poems, “Between Light and Darkness.” You can visit her website online at https://arianarcherry.wordpress.com or follow her on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/ArianathePoet/
