Project VOICE to Appear at Wabash College
February 21, 2014
Wabash College’s Visiting Artists Series will present Project V.O.I.C.E. at 8 p.m., Monday, Feb. 24, in Salter Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center.
Project V.O.I.C.E. (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression) celebrates and inspires self-expression through spoken word poetry. The co-directors of Project VOICE, Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye, have performed at such diverse venues as TED 2011 (with a presentation that Wired Magazine noted: “blew down the house”), Lincoln Center, the United Nations, and HBO’s Def Poetry Jam.
Conceived in 2004, Project V.O.I.C.E. encourages young people to engage with the world around them and use poetry as an instrument to explore and better understand their culture, society, and ultimately themselves. Project V.O.I.C.E. presents a variety of subjects from the personal to the political, and draws from traditions of storytelling, stand-up comedy, song, and lyricism.
