South African born Alan Bell, is the artist behind ArcheDream for HUMANKIND. Growing up in the Age of Apartheid, he resolved to find an art form that would unify the racially divided audience in an ecstasy of wonder. While dedicating himself to the medium of blacklight for over two decades, Alan discovered a way to bridge his African roots with his European inheritance. Alan writes children’s plays for the Princeton Montessori School and he writes children’s music for a CD series called Kaleidoscope Songs with Alex Mitnick (www.kaleidoscopesongs.com). Alan helped Emily Nussdorfer establish Girl’s of Promise, a Philadelphia art and enrichment program for adjudicated inner city teen girls, and he is also artist in residence at the RHD Ridge Avenue Homeless Shelter for men in Center City Philadelphia.
