Deandre Evans – RYSE

Deandre Evans acted in four theatrical productions over the last three years: “Te’s Harmony,” “Po’Boys Kitchen,” “The Adventure of Grief,” and “Bag Ladies’ Butterfly Blues.” His poetry and raps have been featured in The Bigger Picture Campaign and the Off/Page Project’s “This Is Home”—he is emerging as a well-respected voice in the important dialogue around food justice, low-income housing rights, mental health and other social justice issues in Richmond. Deandre teaches weekly spoken word workshops and helps to coordinate open mics at the RYSE Center, creating safe spaces for Richmond youth to express themselves.
