Call the Arts Center for tickets.
This performance features poetry created by participants of the 13th Annual Expressions: Talk Up, Not Down poetry camp. More than 35 county youth spent a week working with master poets learning to use poetry as a positive tool of expression. The poets: Neville Adams, Christopher Fields, Desire Johnson, Sekeithia Johnson, Karin Wilkinson, Sistah Joy, Janique Muckelvene and visual artists Pierre Dennis and Lillian Shaw spent the week working with the youth teaching them how to use their voice for positive expression. Their poems provide a unique look into the modern teen dealing with many issues associated with growing up in the 21st Century.
