© 2018 LIFE Center Stage

On Sunday April 8, 2017 we celebrated National Library week and Poetry month at the Dover Free Public Library. LIFE Center Stage created a call to action to poets to garner participation at this event. After the poetry was read, the poems were incorporated into a collaborative community collage facilitated by board certified art therapist, Cindy
Hamilton and Caldwell University art therapy students.

Speakers included: Diane Sebastian of the Dover Free Public Library, Vicky Mulligan of Life Center Stage and Cindy Hamilton of Caldwell University.

Special thanks to poet Gerald Libby for the inspiration to hold this event.

Poets included:
Kolu Kamue, Justin Morton, Janice Mulligan, Kimberly DeCicco, Nicole Santiago, Diane Sebastian, Edward B. Schussler, Cosmike Wolf, Alexa Wyszkowski and Linda J. Bagdon

Musicians included: Barb Lemasters and Mike Z. 

Heroes & Villains
Youth were invited to work with a teaching artist and art therapist to create a mask and story that shows the challenges that they experience each day. Their masks will be featured in a short film. A second group of youth are working with musicians to compose the music score for the film.
Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day
We created a call to action leading up to Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day where we invited the community to submit inspiring songs around this crisis. 6 songwriters won a spot in an Collaborative Anthem Writing Workshop where they composed three songs. They performed their songs at Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day, one song was picked as the official anthem and was recorded in a professional studio.
