The documentary 'Walk in my Shoes' is available on YouTube. It centers on a homeless man named Lee and a theatrical production about homelessness in Chattanooga.
Walk In My Shoes is a six-minute film about a homeless man called Lee. The film is a documentary about a stage play featuring actors recounting the stories about their lives told to them by homeless people in Chattanooga. Staged in the salvation Army’s recreate café, the play was conceived by the café’s artistic director, Tenika Dye.
This segment features Tenika Dye, as well as Leif Ramsey, the film’s director, and Rodney Van Walkenburg from Arts Build Chattanooga. Arts Build funded the play and the film with a Community Cultural Connections grant.
The school offers music lessons in an after-school program as well as a summer camp.
Northwest Georgia Bank locations are accepting donations of musical instruments for the program until the end of November. The School of Music and Arts plans to present a concert in early December, with a special invitation to individuals who donate instruments to the program.
