Winter Break Spoken-Word Institute

Instead of visiting my family and relaxing like a normal person, I'll be doing this from 12/27 - 12/30.
I'm not mad though.  It's actually going to be very cool.  As some of you know, I serve as arts coordinator of the Canvas, a teen arts center in St. Paul.  This year, we're having an intensive four-day spoken-word workshop over winter break, with a big open mic on the last day.  While this is targeted at teens, I have a pretty broad definition of youth.  If you're interested in spoken-word and want to get some pointers from some of the best in the Twin Cities (Tish Jones, Khary Jackson, Sierra Demulder, me), feel free to stop through.  It should be a lot of fun.

Also, if you work in the Twin Cities with youth in any capacity, please spread the word about this and the Canvas in general.  We offer a ton of high-quality, free arts programs for teens, from photography to hip hop to dance to drawing and much more.
