The 2017–2018 Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellows present their work collaboratively on the Millennium Stage as part of their 2017 Citizen Artist Fellow Retreat. This three-day performance and presentation series features the work of artist and designer Ekene Ijeoma, muralist and community arts educator Michelle Angela Ortiz, Executive Director of El Sistema USA Katie Wyatt, artist and activist De Nichols, poet Hakim Bellamy, violinist and founder of Street Symphony Vijay Gupta, and composer Reena Esmail.

"Can I get a witness?"

Not quite church. Not quite songs. These "spoken word meets traditional Indian vocals meets violin meets performance art" collaborations will bring together the talents of four Citizen Artists to hold a mirror up to the world around them. Followed by an audience discussion hosted by the artists.
