Gregory Acker and Hamidou Koivogui visit VOA’s Shelby Men’s Recovery Center once a month to lead an African drumming class for men in recovery. This class is a part of our Arts in Healing – recently renamed ArtsThrive – partnership. This program fills the halls of VOA’s Shelby campus with beautiful art and music that reflect growth, empowerment and self-expression. Gregory said, “We want the people we work with to connect art to life and life to art.”
