Insite The Riot is an artist, speaker, change agent and the founder of New Heights, an edutainment company that promotes perseverance, expanding self-awareness and overcoming limited thinking with hip hop as the primary platform. Highly regarded for her engaging and inspiring performances, Insite The R.I.O.T is a play on words meaning to Insite the Revolution In Our Thinking. Through affirming messaging, her work seeks to impact the audience’s perception of our individual and collective worth and potential by inspiring and encouraging people to reach for new heights. Insite has engaged dynamic and diverse audiences through performances, workshop facilitation and speaking engagements. To date she has independently released two music projects, Away With Words EP and Away With Words Mixtape.

Rhiannon “AnnonArt” Chester, a 27-year-old Detroit native, has been conscious of inequality and its effects from a young age. In need of understanding, a voice and a sense of power she became interested in historical movements, which led to her becoming an activist. During her years in undergrad, Rhiannon changed the focus of her studies to photography against the advice of many. As her activism grew so did her passion for showcasing the beauty and strength in historically marginalized and oppressed communities. With her eye and heart Rhiannon uniquely combines social justice with photographic art and spoken word. She collaborates with artists and activists who want to see their visions come alive. Her artwork has been showcased at several venues including; The Scarab Club, KICK- The Agency for LGBT African Americans, Affirmations and Trumbullplex.
