Poetry in the Garden
We're partnering with Phoenix Poet Laureate Rosemarie Dombrowski and Hope College and Career Readiness Academy in South Phoenix to engage local youth in self-expression through poetry and muralism. Students will write personal micro-poems in response to their life experiences and compile them into handmade mini-magazines called “zines.” Then, they will work with local artists to design and paint large-scale, autobiographical murals on campus to humanize the school grounds.
We'll post pictures from these activities when we start work in September 2018.
Local muralists who wish to volunteer for this project, please contact Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org
