FREE poetry event open to the community
Sunday, Nov 4, 2012 4:00 PM
Join us for a special youth performance - our first PEACE VOICES event - and see young people from throughout our community share and perform their original poetry.
Students from Greenville High School, League Academy, Southside High School and Woodmont High School have been working throughout the month of October with acclaimed poet and performer Glenis Redmond, who is currently working with the Peace Center as Artist-in-Residence. Glenis is an autobiographical poet, and through a new outreach program at the Peace Center she has gone into schools and been teaching students and teachers easy-to-use techniques in the classroom to craft their own personal narrative poems.
She has urged participants to get out of literal ways of thinking to explore the depths of their hearts and imaginations to create poems that vividly express themselves wholly.
On November 4th students and teachers who have worked with Glenis are invited to come together at the Peace Center and publically showcase their crafted poems. It is our goal that our community will come out and listen to these youths and their teachers render poems of tribute, praise, witness and anthems for a better world.
Featuring a special performance by Glenis Redmond.
November 4th at 4pm in the Gunter Theatre.
Event is FREE, but space is limited. Register today!
