About

Yearwood creates and host programs for arts institutions, organizations, and companies nationally. In 2016, Yearwood was named Emerging Arts leader by Americans for the Arts and top 40 black leaders by Legacy Magazine. She will speak about her practice, including her engagement with the arts and education communities in Miami. Octavia Yearwood relocated to Miami in 2012 to expand her arts services company, Team Ohhh. Through Team Ohhh she provides dance and visual art enrichment programming in public schools, private schools, and dance studios around the world. She has been an educator for the last 15 years, using the arts to bridge the gap between community and academia. Following her talk, Yearwood will join us at Vicky’s Café for an informal chat.
