the project

Our Mission:

Speak Life Poetry Community a Collective Community created for the purpose of being a positive voice. Although, poetry comes in many forms including but not limited too; spoken word, rap, singing, dance & other artistic expressions. We seek to focus on UNITY bringing all the elements together to collaborate & unify artistically. We are striving to break down barriers race, sex, creed, & religion.

Jade Earth Events has been in existence for more than 5 yrs. It is our mission at Jade Earth Events to bring attention to the causes that need more awareness including but not limited to youth literacy, youth career preparation, minority entrepreneurship, green awareness, and underprivileged communities.

We continue to strive to expand our programs and offerings to our local communities and are holding a fundraiser, Phenomenal Open Mic. Our events support the youth in our communities by giving them outlets to express themselves in a constructive manner while sharpening their literacy and public speaking skills. 

These are the two collabortives that I have founded and want to find a permanent home. Speak Life Poetry Community & Jade Earth Events Go Hand in Hand. I began a journey 5 years ago and the progress that I have made for the youth has given me another journey to to take upon. I realized that I wanted to have a solid impact in the community of Wilkinsburg because of the changes that are being made. I want to be involved in a community that still has potential for the youth and the arts gives an open dialogue to all ages. My goal is to raise awareness open dialogue and continue to unify all the arts as a whole.

This fundraiser will launch a community space to have a home base for Speak Life Poetry Community and Jade Earth Events. We are welcoming all to be a part of our group.
