4. From the Canvas to the Page is a Saturday afternoon youth program designed to provide a creative outlet for teens of the Triad, combining visual arts, writing, and performance. Led by local artists in the Poet.She collective.

Teens will learn various strategies for self expression and develop their skills in writing, speaking, painting, and drawing. This will be an uplifting learning experience, for both the  youth involved and local college students who work with this program.

The program will run from July 20-August 24, culminating in a student showcase of work.

Contact Kelly Rae of Poets.She for more information: poet.she7@gmail.com or (219) 741-5420.



5. Queerly Beloved is a book club that meets on a monthly basis to read and discuss books primarily written for, by, or about LGBTQ people of color. Queerly Beloved is also notably Elsewhere’s first book club.

Contact April Parker at aprilparker83@gmail.com for more information.
