Expression Campaign

Our young people are the brightest and most creative minds in our community. It is our obligation to nurture their talents and present a platform for expression. Our strategy is to use local poets, teachers and creative to work with students to harness that internal gift, present writers and performers that showcase similar abilities and to give them a platform to express themselves. Your donations will help defer the cost of the workshop curators and event hosts.
