Shamell Bell is a mother, community organizer, dancer/choreographer, and doctoral candidate in Culture and Performance at UCLA’s World Arts and Cultures/Dance department. Bell received her M.A. in Ethnic Studies from UC San Diego and B.A. with Honors in American Studies and Ethnicity specializing in African American Studies at the University of Southern California. Her work on what she calls, “street dance activism” situates street dance as grassroots political action from her perspectives as a scholar, dancer, and choreographer. Shamell’s research examines street dance movements in South Central Los Angeles through an ethnographic and performance studies lens. Her street dance experience includes featured roles in music videos, award shows, and tours. An original member of the #blacklivesmatter movement, beginning as a core organizer with Justice 4 Trayvon Martin Los Angeles (J4TMLA)/Black Lives Matter Los Angeles to what she now describes as an Arts & Culture liaison between several social justice organizations such as the BLM network, Blackout For Human Rights, The Undercommons at UCLA, among others. She also consults for social justice impact in the tv, film, and music industry with credits such as “community engagement consultant” for George Tillman Jr.’s film adaptation of Angie Thomas’ best selling book, “The Hate U Give”. Shamell is also a member of a think tank for actor, activist, and rapper Common’s philanthropic company, Think Common. She often teaches alongside her 7 year old son, Seijani, who focuses on meditation and mindfulness. They were featured in Common’s supergroup, August Greene’s promo campaign for their first single, “Be Optimistic.” She and her son also serve as Radical Joy Advisors to “Contra Tiempo,” a role created by the Urban Latin Dance Theater Company with a focus on healing, socially astute performance and community engagement.

GRAND PARK’S OUR L.A. VOICES Funding Your Next Arts Project presented by the Center for Cultural Innovation @ LA Law Library
Apr 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Business of Art Workshop Series

Funding Your Next Arts Project presented by the Center for Cultural Innovation

Facilitated by Katrina Frye
FRI APR 26 // 12noon – 1:30pm // LA Law Library (301 W 1st St, L.A. 90012)

RSVP for the workshop here. Although walk-ins are welcome, please register to guarantee your seat.

Do you have an idea for your next artwork but no idea where the money will come from? Join us for a 90-minute interactive workshop on project fundraising for individual artists, projects and businesses. We will talk about basics such as developing your database of contacts, creating valuable relationships and determining where to best focus efforts. We will be focusing on Los Angeles funding opportunities and how to set yourself apart in applications.

After years of sitting behind the desk, seeing other’s ideas through, ensuring someone else’s business was operational, Katrina Frye decided to use her expertise with the one community she is most passionate about – ARTISTS. While earning her bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts she quickly saw a lack of understanding and training on how an artist goes from the studio into the gallery. Katrina began to explore this gap of information and headed back to school to receive her master’s in Arts Management from the Drucker School of Business. Now with ten years of arts management experience Katrina is uniquely positioned to share her findings through Mischief Managed, a company that works to develop independent artists into thriving business professionals. Founded in 2016, Mischief Managed has supported over 100 artists around the nation to achieve their dreams. (www.MischiefManaged.info)
