Description:

Hi Creative Connect Community,

Interested in enhancing your writing and performance skills?

A Ticket To The Revolution by The Poet MJ challenges the idea of what freedom for Black people really means, and how the Afro-diaspora became a people of many lands without being able to choose where our home is. She is one of three artists in our public art exhibition at Union Station "Here Again, At the Crossroads."

On June 15th & June 22nd, The Poet MJ will discuss the themes related to her work and the power of spoken word. Participants will learn her creative process, new techniques to enhance their performance skills, and have the chance to share old or current workings and improve their craft and poetic abilities. Register now to learn about the history of this legendary art form with The Poet MJ and how it is one of the key components of the hip-hop community.
