WHAT IS POETIC PALETTE?
Poetic Palette is an initiative by the Respect Da Mic Poetry Slam to fuse food, art and poetry in order to feed the mind, body and soul of our youth and community through self-expression monthly at the Harvey B. Gantt Center. A hunger exists within our community physically, mentally and spiritually. Our youth have something to say, but are faced with challenges. Poetic Palette will provide art & writing supplies, instructors that will provide steps to feed this hunger; not only with our youth, but community at large.
Mission: To fuse art and poetry while tapping into the critical thoughts and creativity of its participants. To ensure students and community members from all economic backgrounds can feed their minds, bodies and souls with art and poetry writing in non-judgmental environment so that they are free to express themselves at minimal or no cost.
