This is my first grant as an artist and I am so excited to use the funds to install art in our communities. I have always believed that art in communities can change the entire spirit and energy of its residents and ultimately help to empower and uplift.
My project will take Poetic Therapy to the streets on Atlanta with a bullhorn, soapbox and mobile desk engaging residents to create and perform poetry on corners.
Here is the press release for the award and more details on my idea.This project will hit the streets in Spring 2013! Stay tuned for lots of video and photo documentation of the stunt.
