STAY CONNECTED!

In December of 2018, we introduced the Black Poet Residency to our programming. It's an intensive and dynamic workshop series for young writers, performers and creative-minded individuals from across Hamilton.

As a member of the residency, youth have the opportunity to learn from and work with award-winning, critically acclaimed artists. Through their guidance, group members hone their skills, connect with the greater community, and create a strong, impressive professional portfolio​; leaving a legacy for future generations of Black youth to be inspired by.

Today's goal: Think about who you are at your core, stripped of all relationships. If you are a spouse or a parent, it's because of other people—but what are you *because* of you? Today spend time on parts of you that aren’t dependent on anyone else. Make your art. Keep moving.
