Nicole Javanna Johnson (23) holds a degree in Ethics & Management of Artistic Production from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU. Nicole is also an alumna of the Professional Performing Arts School in midtown New York and Founder & Creative Director of Javanna Productions. Javanna Productions is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides students with the resources needed to give back to their communities creatively. Every year, the non-profit presents an effort entitled M.O.V.E. (Motivation Opportunity Vision Entertainment). In this effort students are encouraged to think critically about social issues and create socially responsible artistic pieces to raise funds and awareness for a variety of causes. Recently, Nicole administered a three month civic learning summer program and performance in New York for students at the Professional Performing Arts school in NYC. The education program, M.O.V.E. WE HEAL, encouraged students ages 12- 21 to think critically about the social issues that tear our communities apart. By providing students with opportunities to participate in inter-generational dialogue and introspective work about discrimination, intolerance, prejudice, racism and bigotry, Nicole seeks to develop solution oriented efforts and behaviors that tackle daily injustices
