To Sing of Common Things: The Voices of Young People in 2018: Lena Ginawi and Kiran Waqar
July 29, 2018
Clemmons Family Farm
How do young people cope with civil unrest and social injustice, and how does art help them to do so? Young artists Lena Ginawi and Kiran Waqar offer their perspective in this talk, the second in the five-part humanities speakers’ series, “To Sing of Common Things: The Voices of Young People in 2018.”
Co-organized with The Young Writers’ Project and supported by a VHC grant, the 2018 Clemmons Family Farm Humanities Speakers’ Series features ten teenage scholars who are creative writers and spoken word artists. The young speakers’ presentations share how they use their art to express their feelings, find their grounding, and take action. The speakers also share brief performances of selections of their creative works.
