With Annelies Gentile and Greg Whitt: 

Annelies believes creativity matters. She’s an executive integrative life and leadership coach, speaker, author, and artist with a Master’s in coaching and a knack for poking in a good way. Her gift of presence and loving interruption gently calls you “back to center” to notice life as it is. Through inspiring retreats and conferences, conversations, and insights, she wields artful tools for perspective, progress, and growth to nurture and coach you through change. Annelies has lived in Raleigh since 1985 and has insights into what Raleigh was like “way back when” and has long-time relationships with a network of fellow Raleigh artists which makes her walks deep and interesting.

Greg believes life is richer when we communicate, cooperate, and collaborate with one another and with the world around us. He’s an award-winning facilitator and arts educator teaching applied philosophy through music in corporations, congregations, communities, and classrooms. Greg is the founder of the Raleigh Drum Circle and is hyper-active in the local arts community. On the hunt for vintage hi-fi and midcentury modern design, he’s hip to all the second-hand shops in town. Greg is a graduate of NC State University and holds a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. He has called Raleigh home since 1986. You can find him online at www.drumforchange.com, in a hammock, or perhaps behind a brew of one sort or another in locally-owned establishments throughout the city.


New to Raleigh or just visiting? Raleigh is a rapidly growing ever-changing city. Many factors play into what’s shifting and that’s reflected in its art scene. Have fun and get to know what’s going on up close and personal!

The Walking on Color Street Art Walk starts at CAM at Martin and West and meanders through the Arts District then up towards Nash Square. Along the way, you’ll see colorful wall murals, street art, and sculpture. You’ll also be invited to interact with others and reflect upon how and why creativity leads to a rich and meaningful life.

Annelies and Greg’s style is similar to a walking TED talk as they’ll cover a wide variety of interesting topics and warm your heart. Their kindness, joy, and established connections within the local art scene make it feel like you’re visiting with a good friend.
