Angela Wilson is the founder and CEO of the AngelWing Project, Inc. She leads the non-profit organization in their mission to “positively impact the community by providing uplifting, entertaining shows and events to inspire appreciation for and participation in the arts.” She is a producer, director, an award-winning playwright; a creative artist with a vision. Since the inception of the AngelWing Project, the journey has been nothing short of amazing. The AngelWing Project has touched many lives since its beginning in 2015.
Angela has always been creative and artistic with a penchant for the performing arts. Growing up she performed on a regular basis, singing, and acting as a child, taking drama classes in high school, and continuing to perform into her adult years. A natural teacher and artist, Angela found her niche in plays that are based loosely on actual events and tell stories of African American cultural experiences. She ensures that audiences are learning as they are being entertained and inspired.
The AngelWing Project is now in residence at the Chesapeake Arts Center, a premier arts center in the region and they collaborate on many projects. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused AWP to be more innovative, looking at ways to perform and offer programming in an online format.
Angela says that she is out here trying to make the world a better place through art and giving back. She believes she offers a unique perspective in her art that people can easily relate to. While there is nothing new under the sun; she believes that what makes someone a true artist is that he or she is always finding new and different ways to express life.
Angela's advice to aspiring artists and performers: “Understand what makes you unique, which is what makes you great. Identify your distinct perspective on things, and then figure out how to tell that story to the world through your artistic abilities.”
