Movement 515

Movement 515 is a creative writing community where, twice a week, students and teachers come together to combine the skill of writing and performance.  Attempting to slow down the world and investigate themselves, they work toward becoming change agents, shedding light on the impact human emotion and connection brings to the global community.

Six students from Movement 515 and groups throughout the city will be chosen to attend “Brave New Voices,” an international youth poetry slam festival featured on HBO.


Tuesday, 2:45-4:15, Home High School

Thursday, 3:30-5:00, Des Moines Social Club
