Teens are invited to join artist and activist Kevin Sutton as they take you through some exercises to unlock your creative potential.

Throughout history great thinkers have often reflected on our society through poetry. Whether through rap, rhyme or written down, words also give power to our innermost lives and allow the expression of frustration, hurt and hope. Learn as Kevin shares their personal experience of how art has been a key strategy used for both personal growth and their activism work. Participate in our poetry book after the workshop and get volunteer hours for your submissions. This program is delivered through Zoom. You only need to register once per viewing device.
