CULTURAL ENRICHMENT AWARD
Madaha Kinsey-Lamb, M.Ed.
This award acknowledges efforts that leverage the power of creativity and cultural expression to bring about positive social impact, promote inclusivity, and enrich the lives of community members. It celebrates individuals and organizations that have demonstrated a deep commitment to utilizing the arts as a vehicle for storytelling, community engagement, and empowerment.
This year, The Cultural Enrichment Award is presented to Madaha Kinsey-Lamb, Founder and Executive Director of Mind-Builders Creative Arts Center. Mind-Builders was founded in 1978 by Madaha Kinsey-Lamb. She is a testament to the transformative power of the arts and its potential to unite, uplift, and empower communities by celebrating and cherishing their unique cultural identities.
A vision of bringing quality arts education to the community, and to create a learning environment, where young people could explore, expand and develop their sense of self through dance, music, theater and more.
Since it's inception, TPFF has found a true partner in Mind-Builders. We offered our first Dance is Healing workshop there and offer annual scholarships to students at this facility. At Mind-Builders, we found like-minded, caring and compassionate community advocates. We have been strengthened through their support, and learned from their experience.
