In July, Obie Award-winning actor-singer-writer Daniel Beaty (“Through the Night” and “Emergency”) begins a three-year artist-in-residency and civic engagement program at Emerson College, supported by a $350,000 grant from the Barr Foundation. While in Boston, Beaty, 38, who performed at the college’s Paramount Center this week, will focus on projects featuring his unique blend of music, movement, and the spoken word. He’ll also work closely with ArtsEmerson, the Elma Lewis Center for Civic Engagement, Learning, and Research, HowlRound: a Center for the Theater Commons, and other local organizations, many of them youth-oriented. “This is a wonderful opportunity to engage multiple communities in discussions and workshops related to the complex, thought-provoking topics that Daniel Beaty covers in his writings and performances,” Emerson College President Lee Pelton said. Beaty, the author of “Transforming Pain to Power: Unlock Your Unlimited Potential,” held a yearlong residency at Emerson in 2013.
