The Springfield Regional Arts Council, in collaboration with Poetry Outreach Strategist Rex Ybañez, have been developing the framework of an event we hope to hold next month.
Art Responsibility: an afternoon of poetry, music and creative expression The definition of responsibility is two fold: the state or fact of being accountable and the opportunity or ability to act independently. We are holding space for artists of color in our community to have opportunities for independent expression and the authority to hold listeners and participants accountable in this space. We want to hear, highlight, and amplify voices.
If you are a poet, artist, musician or performer interested in this opportunity, or a community member interested in helping organize the event, contact Director of Programs Rachel Johnson at Rachel@springfieldarts.org. Location and further details TBA.
