Church hymns, love songs, the lullabies we sing to our children: each of these are artistic expressions inspired by, and based on, poetry. But poetry’s impact isn’t just limited to the arts. Today, many different individuals and groups are using poetry to aid organizational and community development efforts. To explore the different ways poetry is making itself present in our modern society, we’re complementing our usual end of season performances with a day-long series of TED-style talks. Each will showcase how different communities and organizations are using poetry and music to deepen their mission impact, aid healing and improve working relationships.
Friday 5/5 - 8PM, Plymouth Congregational Church, Seattle
