Art from Ashes

01/01/2014 to 03/18/2014

For more than 20 years, the Phoenix Rising Poetry and Spoken Word program has provided an innovative approach to addressing the issues that face struggling young people in our society. Using the creative power of language, youth learn to speak in ways that encourage self-confidence and more positive choices through our unique process of expression, connection and transformation.
EXPRESSION facilitates a safe way for youth to tell their stories in a non-judgmental environment through the language of metaphor.
CONNECTION allows understanding and acceptance to develop with peers and adults.
TRANSFORMATION uses guided writing prompts to help youth create poetry that speaks to their value and their ability to choose a healthy and productive life.
