From March-July 2021, I co-coached 3 poets and 3 musicians aged 12-16 for the Youth Poetic Performance Collaboration project, sponsored by WordPlay Cincy and MYCincinnati. The project focused on activism through artistry, and the students considered how they might use their art to effect change. The poets each wrote one original poem on a social topic of their choice, and performed their pieces with original musical accompaniment composed in collaboration with the music students. The performances took place at the Price Hill Creative Community Festival on July 23, 2021. The following 3 videos are of each poet’s performance.
