“For some, such as René Nesbit, this round of A.M. Collaborative is in fact a return. Nesbit – an Atlanta-based poet, thinker and choreographer since 2016 – participated in the previous 2020-2021 session and expressed how the program exceeded her expectations … What arose is a stunning tableau centering around compassion, community, resistance and other human responses to hardship.”

“The diverse line-up featured 13 creatively crafted submissions ranging between music, poetry, dance, and film. The event offered both in-person tickets, which sold out ahead of time, and a virtual screening option. René Nesbit, founder of Can I Color Now Studios and director of Cherish Dance, hosted the event with elegance and inspiration, inviting audience members to find their own ways to celebrate this holiday.”

"In ... Through Deep Waters, (René Nesbit) directed, danced, and choreographed. (She) shared statistics about the world’s lack of clean water and donated the entirety of their ticket sales to the charity of cause, Charity: Water. The result felt like a deep passion project and an outreach effort that stretched into the corners of the Atlanta dance community by providing performance opportunities to a range of different artists in different mediums."
