Kinetic Affect’s Alma Mater
The matriculation ceremony held on September 1st at Miller auditorium was a true success as Kinetic Affectteamed up with Western Michigan University to bring in the new school year. The 3,000 bodies in attendance honored both Kirk and Gabriel with a standing ovation and plenty of pats on the back. This bodes well as Kinetic Affect begins to expand its reach into the community.
Now connecting with the Fine Arts department, Kinetic Affect hopes to reach deeper into the WMU student body and collaborate on a deeper level with the university. Studio 246 plans to be a kind of connective hub where WMU students can come downtown and have a blast in the world of fringe art and theater.
Kinetic Affect would like to thank WMU and especially Dr. Keith Hearit for their support and continued to desire to see a Kirk and Gabriel AFFECT the students right here in Kalamazoo and on campus.
Hi, I graduated from high school at Kalamazoo Central 3 years ago…I just wanted to let you know that lately, whenever I need something empowering, I listen to your words. Since graduating I’ve moved to New York and I’ve been sharing your words and stories here and you’ve got many fans here now. I hope you’re both doing well, and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you.-
…I was at Lakeside Academy and attended the classes that were put on by Speak It Forward. I loved and appreciated what you did for me and my fellow peers. It has been almost a year and a half since I left and I’m doing much better now. The things you taught me I still use to this day. Thank you.-
I still wear my shirt from your first performance downtown Kalamazoo. Circa 2006 or so… You guys are the TRUTH!!!-
