Playing For Others asks the question: What if we got curious about what our creative lives truly demand from us?

On Friday, February 2, 2018 at The Fillmore Charlotte, over 400 creative Charlotteans were treated to a special gift: the world premiere an original 20-minute concert musical inspired by the CreativeMornings global manifesto. “First and Foremost: Beliefs for a Creative Life” was conceived by Playing For Others founder Jen Band and composer James Kennedy, and performed by PFO teens and alumni. Approached through our February theme of “Curiosity,” the piece is a powerfully moving and fun journey inside of these joyful, challenging, oft-lonely and deeply-connected creative lives of ours. Please enjoy and share this video with anyone who needs a dose of inspiration.

About the speaker

This month, we will be treated to a live performance of an original 20-minute musical that Playing For Others has created especially for – and inspired by – CreativeMornings/Charlotte and our February theme of “Curiosity.”

Playing For Others (PFO) provides a space for teens to explore and answer the questions, “Who Am I?” and “How will I give of that?” through programming in Personal Development, Service, and the Arts.

Through Personal Development, teens focus on “Who Am I?” They recognize who they are being in each moment, increase their self-awareness, and learn to shift their perspective. Through Service, teens focus on “How will I give of that?” They become young philanthropists – giving of their time, talent, and treasure. And in the Arts, they experience self-expression, embracing creativity, and using that passion to serve.

Through PFO’s core values – Attitude of Gratitude, Acceptance, Accountability, and Action – teens learn to become effective leaders of self and others.

PFO is cultivating the next generation of leaders, philanthropists, and compassionate human beings.
