RECLAIM / The House Poem Project

On December 6, 2017, I and my creative co-lead Phyllis Boyd were awarded an Art Place America National Creative Placemaking Award. This award will fund RECLAIM, which allows us to take the seed of The House Poem Project to an entirely new level in terms of community transformation!


The House Poem Project seeks to use art as a vehicle to transform urban blight into beauty and community opportunity by addressing abandoned housing issues, alternative economic opportunities, formerly incarcerated and youth development. In turn by addressing these issues we are able to create a much safer community for all. Checkout the project website to learn the details of this effort.
