After some deliberation, the Chase Street Garden gets growing!! My classmate Robert Fitzgerald spearheaded this greening opportunity in East Baltimore, right down the street from the Johns Hopkins Medical compound.
The community comes out in full force to help out and support this effort!
My little helper, Keshawn. He helped me make some banners to decorate the garden space.
Cutting the banners with community member, Maxine Washington.
Go Robert go: the planting begins next week!
Academy for College and Career Exploration students are excited to talk about art! Students from schools and organizations are encouraged to come by and experience the 5th Annual WHO ARE YOU? Youth Media Festival gallery show at CENTERSTAGE Theatre first hand by scheduling a tour. This particular group of students helped me see the artwork--pieces I have been looking at for months now--in a brand new way!

As you can tell by the previous post, our poetry event, Rhyme Your Mind, was a huge success. We captured all of the poems recited during this and other festival events in our poetry compilation zine. The poets featured in this zine are the movers, shakers, and creatives of the next generation. Interested in having your own copy?
Wide Angle's poetry and video night, part of the 5th Annual WHO ARE YOU? Youth Media Festival, in collaboration with Poetry for the People and Stadium School Youth Dreamers: over 100 youth, parents, and educators came out in support of young people who had a story to tell . . .
