Talk LIVE: Growing Your Career & Community

Monday, June 11th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Richmond Triangle Players

Guests will find the intersection of passion and professional excellence at Talk LIVE: Growing Your Career & Community. This TED-style event will engage, inform, and inspire professionals of all ages with actionable steps and advice on how to advance your careers while also harnessing your passion to influence real change in our community.

At Family Lifeline’s annual Talk LIVE event, participants heard from a variety of leaders about how success comes not so much from what we do (our job), but how well we do it (our passion for our job) and the effect it has (impact of our job).

Speakers included:

  • Mickael Broth, Local Artist & Muralist

Learn more about our speakers:

Mickael Broth, Renowned Artist

Mickael is Richmond-based artist, muralist, and writer. Broth came to Richmond in 2001 with the intention of painting graffiti as much as possible. His involvement in vandalism was halted abruptly with his arrest in 2004 and subsequent ten-month jail term for his crimes. Since that time, he has gone on to pursue an active (and mostly legal) career in the arts. Awarded a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship in 2008 for his gallery work which has been shown in museums, galleries, and abandoned buildings across the country, he has painted murals throughout Richmond and the United States over the past decade as part of public art projects and private commissions. In 2016, Broth received international acclaim for his “dancing” Bernie Sanders mural in Richmond. In 2013 he published a three part memoir entitled Gated Community: Graffiti and Incarceration, detailing his experiences in the justice system.

Broth has been an active member of the community, working with youth art groups, as well as leading groups of corporate volunteers through public art projects, in addition to contributing work to multiple non-profit organizations. Broth is the co-founder of Welcoming Walls, a project dedicated to bring public art to the highways and gateways of Richmond Virginia in an effort to boost civic pride, tourism, and the city’s reputation as a capital of creativity.
