This fall, we collaborated with Professor @fosta1918 and his students in the “Art of the Book” course. Each student was given a poem from our Traveling Stanzas Collection featuring the voices of refugees and immigrants and their children. The poems represent outreach conducted in Akron’s North Hill neighborhood with our partners at Urban Vision and the International Institute of Akron. Students designed these books around a single poem of their choice from this collection. The range and diversity of approaches to creating these stunning one of a kind books is delightful. Take a look at the gallery of their work. @kentstateschoolofart #collaboration #artofthebook #northhill #thankyouArron!
The Wick Poetry Center’s annual World Poetry Reading is a performance by Kent State’s international students, staff, and faculty. Each of the fifteen participants will read a poem of their choosing in English and their native language. Just some of the featured countries include: Bolivia, Germany, Rwanda, Kazakhstan, and Oman. The event is open and free to all.
Words nerds and poetry enthusiasts: Come out TOMORROW at 7:30 p.m. for Celebrating Our Own and an open-mic reading. The event will be in the Kent Student Center (Room 306 ABC).🌟
