Poetry for Personal Power Afternoon Showcase
By asking one simple question, ‘What Gives You Personal Power?’, Kansas City-based non-profit Poetry for Personal Power (P3) has helped people to overcome adversity through artistic expression for almost ten years. The power of poetry to effect positive social change, engage peer support, and improve mental health is the message this organization successfully conveys as they allow their artists to do what they do best. This showcase is only a taste of what the sponsored artists of P3 have to offer. For this event to kick off Labor Day weekend, regional coordinator Sheri Hall will coordinate the participation of ten artist/advocates in developing a two-hour poetry program that will entertain, instruct and empower listeners.
