We Could Be Heroes


This motivational commentary by actor/playwright Mike Wiley speaks to his experiences and influences as a boy growing up in Virginia, a young man finding his inner voice, and his journey to becoming a professional touring artist in America. It is a statement of gratitude to those who incite greatness, and a call to action to those who aspire to… It is a personal sharing about a long-planted seed.

Originally written for Arts North Carolina as a message to arts advocates and legislators, the speech has been presented as a commencement address, and at education and arts conferences.
