A multigenerational poetry presentation that's part of Book-It’s on-going commitment to integrate main stage and education, educate our subscribers, and help lift students’ voices in our community. Featuring teaching artists Daemond Arrindell and Naa Akua.
This event is a culminating celebration and performance that is open to the public.
Listen Up! is a year-long series of community partnership programs and workshops in which Seattle youth and older community members will research, develop, and perform their own spoken word pieces based on the theme of identity highlighted in Dr. Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Inspired by the wish to create change in our community, we are pleased to be partnering with renowned spoken word artists, local Seattle Public School teachers, high school youth, and Silver Kite Community Arts, LLC in our collective cry, “Listen Up!”
