poetry ACROSS the peninsula
Thanks to all who tuned in to celebrate Voice.2.Voice finalists as they performed their poems on a virtual stage for the first time!
In honor of National Poetry Month, Voice.2.Voice Poetry Project, now in its 4th year, offers middle school students across seven local schools the opportunity to engage with poetry through performance. Over the month of April, visiting teaching artists lead performance-based workshops across Deer Isle and Blue Hill Peninsula classrooms. This year we took the program online!
Voice.2.Voice challenges students to investigate, interpret, memorize, and perform a poem of their choice from a curated anthology. Together, students, teachers, and Opera House Arts staff have created a culture of risk-taking, critical thinking, and deep listening.
