It all started with a dream of being on stage and being under the lights, while singing and dancing my heart out and expressing myself through the Performing arts. Why does Knoxville have such a tiny window of opportunity for the continuation of performing art development after high school? Where do all the gifted writers, designers and sound production people go locally after they graduate and stay in Knoxville?           Why do we have to go out of town to pursue the craft and skill?

The Sols Writing & Performing Arts Center will fill that need and we need your support to get our theatre and our productions out to the community. We will produce a variety of plays and public service skits around town, until we have our very own facility, that will have an intimate setting of about 100 seats and it will be classroom ready for our 4 week learning camps in self book publishing and play productions.

SWPAC will build opportunities for dialogue between the audience and the theatre.We will build collaborations with various partners in the community by addressing community needs. We will listen to community needs and determine,with their support, about what is relevant to them.We want to serve the under served communities and families and bridge the gap together.

SWPAC will offer children series and workshops for multigenerational audiences, including the very young.We want to partner with schools, afterschool programs, community centers, hospital and religious organizations, city agencies, senior centers and veteran facilities.

SWPAC will develope programs that will strengthen relationships with communities served by theatre. We will focus on peer to peer and field learning for multigenerational , cross cultural and cross discipline ways of theatre making. We will offer 3 workshops that are 7 weeks long each. Root of my pain, Healing to Dealing and Sols Write Self book Publishing workshops all year round.

SWPAC will partner with various organizations and collaborate for grants to bridge the gap between theatres and their productions. Donations and sponsorships to SWPAC will assist in productions throughout the year. SWPAC will produce at least 4 plays per year. Tickets sales are vital for continued productions and the growth of compensating the actors.
SWPAC will operate with volunteer actors and actresses and we will grow with grants, donations, sponsors and ticket sales to pay our cast members. We want to bring community arts backs to existence and income to our performing art visionaries. SWPAC has a dedicated board of directors  and some powerful donors that have helped us this far, now we need your support and donations to take it to the next level and provide this space for our performing arts individuals that are right here locally looking for an outlet.

We will have on board skilled actors, directors, writers and designers, along with interns, that will mentor our members in their skilled craft of artistry. We will have a Sols Lyrically Said Ensemble at every production that uplifts the community and meets every 4th Saturday.This is the Topics Committee and Review board. This committee will review submitted plays for production consideration, along with brainstorming topic ideas for our publications.

We want to provide you with Faith Based Situation of Life Stories from all walks of life that are impacting our communities and families. We want to uplift you, empower you and motivate you to Write your way out from The Root. No one knows what you feel nor do they know what you are going through.
