Over three hundred people visited the opening of the Traveling Stanzas: Writing Across Borders exhibit at Summit ArtSpace. Poets and designers mingled with members of the Akron and Kent State University communities and shared their experiences in Traveling Stanzas workshops. Visitors shared in the power that poetry has to create intimate and inclusive spaces for all to tell their stories.
Science Stanzas, a project of Traveling Stanzas, is an initiative of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University. Partnering with poet and environmental spokesperson Jane Hirshfield, the Wick Poetry Center joined the marchers at the Teach-In on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
Traveling Stanzas community arts projects bring poetry to people’s everyday lives through innovative methods and digital platforms.
