2008 Art and Change Grant – $845

Yolanda will guide 12 to 15 young poets from various Philadelphia public and private high schools in the production of a professional quality audio CD of spoken word poetry that students will create during the year and will perform at the Germantown Poetry Festival. Through a collaboration with the Philadelphia Recording Service, the students will record the CD over the course of a week. They will then debut the CD at a release party for family and friends and the Germantown/Mt. Airy community. The sales of the CD will benefit the Germantown Poetry Festival's 2008-09 workshops and annual April event.
