Sunday Afternoons for Kids: (Mini) Words, Spoken

Sunday Apr 15, 2012 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 10–14

Students will examine what makes words perform and what we can do to harness our personal histories, identities, and voices. The workshop will culminate with a mini spoken-word slam. Led by Mike Sonksen, aka Mike the PoeT, a third-generation L.A. native who specializes in empowering youth to find and use their voice.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit workshops.826la.org or call 310-305-8418.

Hammer Kids and Family Flicks are made possible, in part, through the generosity of supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), a family fundraiser. Additional support is provided by the Westwood Neighborhood Council.
