The Hubs in Springtime: Hip-Hop and Other Poetry
Last week one of the student/community groups that come under the
Civic House umbrella--the Foundation Community Arts Center--joined with
TOUCHH (Teaching Ourselves Unique Culture of Hip-Hop, a Penn-based center
for the study of Hip-Hop) to bring 13 local groups to the Rotunda-among
them The Architects, below. The Foundation is working with several Penn
and neighborhood groups to "create a permanent home for perfromances
and cultural learning opportunities."
To mark National Poetry Month, a peripatetic "Poetry Bug" made a stop on the green at Penn this month, sponsored by the Kelly Writers House and several local schools whose pupils came to create magnetic poetry on its hood, doors and fenders. The white-coated "EMT's" above, who toured the U.S. with the Bug during April, are Christa and Mary Parmentier. Between them is a visitor, Megan Daley, and in the back row are her sister Karyn Daley, C '99; Kelly Writers House's resident coordinator Heather Starr; and the House's director Kerry Sherin.
