Collaborative Poetry Performance

On March 8th, Riverwood will host a collaborative poetry performance with students from the American School for the Deaf and students from the Greater Hartford Academy of Arts. This will be a poetry event to remember as  two separate groups of students from different cultural worlds will present their original poetry.

Since 2014, the two school groups have formed a collaboration that has been immensely successful and has continued every school year; the students meet monthly and create a body of voiced and American Sign Language {ASL} poetry.

21 Students will perform

Adult mentors for the students include: Anna Andrews{retired teacher}, Sharon Halscheid{teacher},
Sonia Bernier{teacher} Raphael Oses{teacher,poet} & Tom Nicotera{poet}

Interpreters: Mary Sue Owens & Christina Stevens

Please join us at 7pm March 8th at The Universalist Church of West Hartford, 433 Fern Street, West Hartford, CT.
