About Amani Greene
Amani is a multidisciplinary artist (vocalist, pianist, drummer)/curator born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Both his creations and curation are dual wielded in an effort to free up time + space for perspectives unsung - to create/curate moments that truly move the spirit. Amani’s music centers the nuances of the black experience through his lyrics, he speaks to the listener with a specific intentionality. This point of intention carries over into his curatorial practice, as he feels it a responsibility to himself as well as his community to platform non-traditional forms of expressions.
This class is curated in partnership with The School of Making Thinking.
