Poem in Your Pocket Day

U School Students Advocating for Art & Poetry

Join U School's 5th Annual Poem in Pocket Day Celebration.

Join The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design and the U School High School for the “Poem in your Pocket Day” - as a celebration of community, voice, and expression. “Poem in Your Pocket Day” is the culmination of a semester-long exploration of poetry and performance led by teaching artist Perry “Vision” DiVirgilio. This all-ages event will feature performances by U School students, the release of a student-created poetry zine, plus food and writing stations for everyone in attendance.

This Poem in the Pocket event is made possible with support from the 2018- 2019 Picasso Project Teacher Based Grant.
