Poetic Gestures by Janet Evans & Arts4Learning
In Miami, poetry can be shared in many languages: English, Spanish, Creole, Russian, and Chinese, to name a few. However, one language is often overlooked: American Sign Language (ASL), a language of gestures for people who are hearing impaired. Poetic Gestures shares the beauty of this language with the general public and celebrates the anniversaries of its participating organizations. Sponsored in part by “All Kids Included - Accessible Arts Experiences for Kids” (AKI), which creates inclusive arts and cultural programs so that kids of all abilities and their families can participate fully in the arts. AKI is an initiative of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, and in part through grant funding provided by The Children’s Trust.
Created by Arts for Learning (A4L) in celebration of their 15th Anniversary; the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs (DoCA), in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of All Kids Included – Accessible Arts Experiences for Kids (AKI); and O, Miami in celebration of their 5th Anniversary
