Ever wanted to just cut loose and let your inner creativity go wild? Now’s your chance with Art from Ashes, the award-winning nonprofit devoted to youth empowerment through creativity!
We invite you to celebrate National Poetry Month with an online POETRY PROWL, a poetic, photographic version of a stay-at-home-inspired scavenger(ish) hunt.
This event is for anyone and everyone of all ages and as always, young people up to age 24 are invited to participate for FREE! RSVP between now and April 25: bit.ly/poetry-prowl
Here’s an overview
• Respond to any or all of our poetry prompts
• Scavenge your world for inspiration, with your phone/camera, paper and pen, your besties, family, or solo
• Share your discoveries on any social media platform and tag us using #artfromashes #poetryprowl
• Win entries for door prizes if you donate, or whenever you tag AfA on social media, or if you complete the list
• Show off your creative genius, win a door prize, meet other participants, listen to youth poets, and salute National Poetry Month’s 25th Anniversary at 3 PM April 25 at our Poetry Prowl Palooza on Zoom! (link will be sent to all who register)
The Prowl and the Party are online events, however prompts encourage discovery at home, and some involve visiting outdoor locations. Youth ages 12 – 24 who RSVP get a “ticket stub” by email to bring to our Wednesday poetry and spoken word workshop to receive a FREE writing kit.
Youth who bring a friend with you to the workshop, and you’ll both get an *extra* gift!
