Poet Glenis Redmond joins the Peace Center as Artist-in-Residence
October 4, 2012
The Peace Center is pleased to announce that the Center has engaged its first Artist-in-Residence, nationally acclaimed poet Glenis Redmond, who will be joining the Education team to build Peace Voices, a program to foster creative expression through writing and performing poetry throughout our community.
Glenis is a Greenville native who has toured the globe for the past 20 years presenting poetry in performances for audiences that span from pre-schools to prisons. She has worked in various capacities with the Peace Center for many of those years, and we are thrilled to have her join our staff to engage the community in such a special way.
Through our work with Glenis, the Peace Center will extend its outreach in working with both students and adults through events at the Center, working in schools and Master Class opportunities with Glenis.
Peace Voices provides students and adults the opportunity to find their own poetic voice through connecting with their unique personal histories. Much of this work is detailed in or Peace Voices Keynotes.
