Poets in the Park
Come one, come all! Join the Writers of Oya for their first public showcase and support our young artists! Writers of Oya is a program for middle school girls of color developed by local poet, Ashanti Files. The program will be held at the Lake House in Crystal Lake Park, 206 West Park Street, Urbana.
The program encouraged writing and spoken word as a method for self expression and healing through a series of workshops held at Urbana Middle School. Writers of Oya participants will share their latest work in their first public slam!
Come out and support our local emerging artists and the work of Writers of Oya! Refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public. This program is made possible by an Urbana Arts and Culture Grant through the City of Urbana's Arts and Culture Program.
