Huge shout-out to the 2nd graders of Findley Elementary! Yesterday, we led an afternoon of performance workshops in preparation for their annual poetry jam next Friday. We were so impressed with your willingness to get free and are sending you all of our snaps!
We are forever grateful for the United Way of Central Iowa for their continued support of RunDSM! The poets of Movement 515 were honored to perform for 800+ people at the 2015 Live United Recognition Luncheon on Monday. Their voices, opinions, and stories are powerful, and we couldn’t be more proud to work with these incredible young people.
We couldn’t be more proud of the Half-Pints poets at King Elementary for their very first performance yesterday! Shout-out to spoken word poet Words Taylor, Movement 515 mentors Harry, Julio, Ethan, Susan, Madison, and Davonte, and Ms. Nyla Mowery for providing them safe and brave spaces to get free!
Special thanks to Des Moines Public Schools for capturing the magic.
