A few of my dear friends have created “Chi Voices” a spoken word poetry documentary with the purpose of combating Chicago’s youth violence problem through art, and giving a voice to at risk youth who have experienced youth violence. They are attempting to raise funds to cover their equipment cost to create this documentary, and they’re almost there. The Kickstarter campaign has 7 days left to reach their full amount of funding (or they lose all funding they’ve earned so far). Help if you can to support a much needed change in the city of Chicago. Plans for this documentery after its creation includes a variety of screenings throughout the city of Chicago, in high schools and etc.
Chi~Voices is a multi-part film series where Spoken Word artists creatively express themselves about youth violence in Chicago.
Chi~Voices: A Poetic Film Series - A media project with six premier poets who creatively express their personal experiences with violence in their communities through Spoken Word and Film. With the project, we aim to showcase personal stories directly from citizens of the community, not politicians, corporations, or news media. Our intention is to showcase the film series to show how violence effects our environment, economy, and humanity.
