This year Kuumba Lynx will present the 8th annual ½ Pint Poetics (HPP) poetry slam.
½ Pint Poetics is a literacy project that engages students in arts making & learning so as to increase their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, all while encouraging cross-cultural competency and youth dialogue through civic engagement. The most exciting part of ½ Pint Poetics is the two day poetry slam and arts showcase held at DePaul University on May 7th and 10th! Please consider getting involved in the 2016 ½ Pint Poetics project!
GET THE FACTS: In the 2015-16 school year, 59% of reporting CPS elementary schools met the 120 minutes of weekly arts instruction recommendation, up from 47% two years ago.
