Arts Council Hosts Inaugural Poetry Out Loud Competition
Words Come to Life
The Arts Council of Kern received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for a first of its kind arts engagement in Bakersfield, CA. The ACK will produce a powerful community wide event that incorporates poetry, spoken word, the visual arts, and music. The mission of the event is to encourage and foster healing and hope through the process of personal creativity and performance.
