HEALTHY PEOPLE, HAPPY PLANET
The REACH Museum is thrilled to announce our partnership with the Urban Poets Society for the first annual Earth Day Poetry Slam! We believe that art and culture can be powerful catalysts for positive change, and this event is a perfect opportunity to showcase the talent and creativity of our community while raising awareness about environmental issues. The poetry slam will provide a platform for poets to share their unique perspectives on the theme of “Healthy People, Happy Planet.” and we are excited to see what kind of impact their words will have. We are honored to collaborate with the Urban Poets Society on this event and look forward to celebrating Earth Day together through the art of spoken word.
Whether you are a seasoned poet or a beginner, we encourage you to participate and share your voice.
Let’s celebrate Earth Day together through the power of poetry!
