Meet ISPA's 2016 Canadian Fellowship Program participant Akilah Newton!

Akilah Newton


Founder and Executive Director, Overture with the Arts

Akilah Newton is the Founder and Executive Director of Overture with the Arts (OWTA); a non-profit organization based in Montreal offering a variety of free and low cost arts workshops to youth. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Arts, Music & Entertainment Management from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, she felt a need to give back to the community that had helped foster her own dreams and aspirations in performing arts. With over 15 years of experience in the arts industry she reached out to her network of talented artists and assembled a team of instructors to deliver OWTA workshops that use the arts for social change.
