In April 2020, Art House Productions began collaboration on the Jersey City Community Poem project and received submissions from 42 poets with the theme: “Life in the Pandemic and Beyond: Quarantine, Devastation, and Hope for the Future.” Jersey City Poet Laureate, Rashad Wright, then curated the pieces into one crowdsourced, community poem entitled “Just Breathe”

I’m so proud to be featured alongside Arts house Productions Executive Director, Meredith Burns, Nancy Menendez Booth, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, Jersey City Councilman Rolando Lavarro, Jersey City Councilwoman Denise Ridley, Jersey City Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey, Crytal Davis, JC Poet Laureate Rashad Wright, and many others.55 performers, including Jersey City officials, local artists, and many of the credited poets filmed themselves orating different stanzas.

This is the completed video montage of “Just Breathe that premiered at Art House’s Virtual Access JC Fridays on June 5th,2020. This project was sponsored by The Office of Cultural Affairs in Jersey City.

The artist on day 11  is performing lines from my submitted poem and I’m reciting lines on Day 12.

Happy Blogging!!
