“Thank you for helping others find their voice and for bringing out all the fantastic youth from Lakeside for yet another outstanding presentation. You both have come so far & have turned what was once horribly upsetting & negative pasts into hope & promise for a bright future, not only for yourselves, but for the multitude of kids whose eyes have been opened (often for the first time) to possibilities they never imagined for themselves! I have been and will remain a strong supporter of your work & appreciate all you do to encourage positive change in kids & in the general attitude of our local communities, you’re a fantastic credit to us all!”Karen Hickman-Secord
As a thank you to those who have supported us through 10 years of writing and performing original spoken word poetry, we’ve shared these 100 mesages of hope as free downloads, to challenge and inspire all who here them.
Each week for the next year we will select and release 2 poems about triumph over the past. These will be a collection of poems from us as well as collaborative artists. You can collaborate on this project. Send us your own spoken word poems on Youtube or Vimeo and tag them #100poemsforhope
