P.O.W.E.R Juneteenth Celebration
June 19 @ 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM| Free
The P.O.W.E.R. Collective is creating a walking poetry exhibit showcasing the work of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community by displaying original works of poetry and other artistic expression in merchant’s windows throughout the Village of Warwick. In addition, on Saturday, June 19, 2021, “Juneteenth,” we’ll host speakers, spoken word performers, dancing, and music on the Railroad Green!
We’re currently accepting submissions of original work from members of the BIPOC community here (forms.gle/WUkh9CijrXwNbCKS7). Paper entries may also be submitted at Etched In Time Engraving, 58 Main St, Warwick, NY 10990. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2021.
If interested in performing the day of the event, please reach out to P.O.W.E.R at Powerprojectcollective@gmail.com or @POWERProjectCollective on Facebook or Instagram.
P.O.W.E.R. is a women-led, majority BIPOC initiative, the goal of which is to provide a place to share experiences, and provide education to expose and eliminate racism. Through an awareness of one another’s experiences, we can better acknowledge and ground the differences among us through unifying events, discussions, and outreach.
