On line Project VOICE
Meet Sarah Kay, founder, and co-director with Phil Kaye, of Project V.O.I.C.E. (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression)
a national movement that celebrates and inspires youth self-expression through Spoken Word Poetry. Conceived in 2004 by Sarah Kay, Project V.O.I.C.E. encourages young people to engage with the world around them and use Spoken Word Poetry as an instrument through which they can explore and better understand their culture, their society, and ultimately themselves. Project V.O.I.C.E. brings together performance, writing, and a supportive environment to inspire youth to recognize that their views are significant, valid, and necessary.
