After much consultation, and in consideration of Public Health guidelines related to reducing the spread of COVID-19, as well as to ensure everyone’s safety and health, we have decided to cancel all of our non-essential programs at Lake City Community Center as of Monday March 9th for the duration of March, or until further notice.
For the time being we will keep our doors open for minimal social services provision as well as to-go meals, but no group lunch or group classes, workshops, etc. will be held.
Spoken word is an oral art form that focuses on the aesthetic of word play, voice inflection and intonation. It includes any kind of poetry recited aloud such as hip-hop, jazz poetry, poetry slams, traditional poetry readings and even comedy and prose monologues. Listen Up! is a 3 month-long series of intergenerational and solo workshops in which Seattle youth will partner with community members from Lake City. Inspired by the power of our community’s united voice to inspire change, Book-It is pleased to be partnering with Spoken Word Artist Meredith Arena, Silver Kite Community Arts and students from Ida B Wells Middle College High School in our collective cry to “Listen Up!”
