Good Grief + Slam Poetry
Creative Resident Andrea Moore led an intense series of poetry workshops with ten amazing teens from Joan Farley Academy for seven weeks in early 2011. The workshops guided the teenagers in developing, editing, and performing their own slam poems. Andrea’s goal was for each student to work toward developing a single, memorized slam poem that they could perform at any of the various open mics around the city. The process was amazing to watch as the youth each expressed their unique voices through poetry. Slam poetry is a powerful art form that resonates through the space, filling the gallery with passion, angst and possibilities.
