Fellow’s Spotlight: Dr. Tameka Cage Conley

Dr. Tameka Cage Conley (WPWP 2010), coordinator of the High School Young Writers program, has been accepted to the 2013 Flight School Fellowship program which aids in the professional development of Pittsburgh-based artists.

Dr. Cage Conley was recently part of an evening packed with literary art, music, and comedy when PACT (Public Action Communitarian Theatre) rallied for gun control at a powerful, memorable event at Bricolage Production Company on Saturday, January 26. Details of her performance and the inspiring, arts action event were reported by the Post Gazette.

On Saturday, February 2, Dr. Cage Conley and her husband David were featured along with several couples at the New Hazlett Theater at 8 pm, for “Couples Come Out: Celebrating Creative Couples.”  The event was sponsored by Twin Soul Effect, comprised of artists Candace Walker and Leslie Ezra Smith.

On February 27 and 28, Dr. Cage Conley will join Mark Clayton Southers, Founding Artistic Director of the Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company and Artistic Director of Theater Initiatives of the August Wilson Center, and local playwrights to teach theater arts to Pittsburgh area students, sponsored by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, to take place at the Byham Theater.  For details, visit: www.trustarts.org/m/education/students/workshop#.
