Sugarcane Magazine Presents: The Beyond The Lucky Break Documentary Celebration and Fundraiser on Friday, September 16, from 8-11 PM at the Broward Historical Commission. Admission is $10, and includes music, poetry, food and film.
The Beyond the Lucky Break Celebration and Fundraiser raises awareness of the film, and it supports the second phase of the filmâ€™s production. If you come to the Friday night event, youâ€™ll also get a chance to meet some of the professionals already on film, part of Streetâ€™s production team, and get a sneak peak at the great insights to be shared at the conference. The eveningâ€™s fundraiser will feature drinks, hors dâ€™oeuvres, and music by DJ One Star, all of which is included in the $10 admission.
In this new era of changing economies and instability, whoâ€™s most equipped to be successful? Neri Street thinks that itâ€™s the creative professional. So for a decade, sheâ€™s supported people in non-traditional careers, knowing that she was ahead of a coming trend. Sheâ€™s been a long-time performer and successful arts advocate who uses film to reach a wide audience.
Now, sheâ€™s taking her message of creative entrepreneurship to the budding economy in the Caribbean, thanks to an invitation from online blogger, Melissa Hunter. The Edna Manley College of Visual Arts in Kingston, Jamaica is hosting a global arts conference in October. Street will be there, showing an extended trailer from her documentary, Beyond the Lucky Break, and discussing the potential breakthroughs for the artists and other entrepreneurs there.
Itâ€™s also a homecoming for Street, because her family emigrated from Jamaica.
