Flow For Change Poetry Event Fundraiser!

The Flow for Change Poetry event fundraiser at Drom was a hit! We had some of the most inspirational poets perform for the cause of raising money for the 1st Annual Youth Media/Arts Conference this June 27th. We were able to make close to our goal and most of all we had a world premier screening of the Voices of New York Speak PSA (public service announcement) for our guests.

Our guests had a great time and enjoyed the spoken word of Marxman, Helen D. Lewis, Oveous Maximus, Kesed, from the HBO series Brave New Voices Joshua Bennet and Queen GodIs, and last but not least Def Poetry Jams very own Black Ice. These poets brought their own unique style and graced the stage with lyrics that moved, inspired, and gave us a good laugh.

Thanks to everyone who supported and contributed to making this Conference a reality for parents, educators and teaching artists to attend and discuss youth media and the education system and learn key tools that will assist with bringing our youth an updated school curriculum integrated with multimedia resources and creative arts programs.
