Samora Pinderhughes: The Healing Project

Thursday, March 21, 2024

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Vocalist, pianist, artist and filmmaker Samora Pinderhughes creates large, multi-disciplinary projects, which invite audiences to examine what is visible and what is hidden in our daily lives, and how to make social change. Described as “...one of the most affecting singer songwriters today, in any genre” by The New York Times, Pinderhughes’ work inspires awe and thought in equal measure.

His latest work, The Healing Project, a recipient of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant, is a searing examination of the prison industrial complex in the United States, amplifying the testimonials of those affected by incarceration, policing, violence and detention through original music and film. Known for carefully crafted songs with striking intimacy and radically honest lyrics, The Healing Project is a palpably empathetic experience, uniting those who have been silenced with storytellers to create deeply affecting art rooted in connectivity and compassion.

Doors and bar open at 6:30 p.m. for a film screening, performance starts at 7:30 p.m.

The Healing Project is co-presented by Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston, and Project Row Houses. Free parking will be available onsite at the El Dorado Ballroom.
