516 WORDS: Upon Release

516 WORDS: Upon Release

presented at 516 ARTS

516 ARTS is proud to present a poetry event in the gallery with JustWrite, a nonprofit organization geared in the direction of encouraging individuals from all walks of like, socio-economic situations, ethnicities and backgrounds to do simply that, "just write."  It is the belief of lead facilitators Carlos Contreras and Diahndra Grill that common ground can be found among all people through the written and spoken word.  JustWrite works in both juvenile and adult correctional facilities, and on high school and college campuses.  Contreras and Grill will read their own work, while sharing the stage with their writers, both in physical and virtual forms.

Free and open to the public.
