We participated in eight events during the arts whirlwind that is NoMAA’s Uptown Arts Stroll in June: 2 workshops at the Pop-Up Repair Shop, the Harlem River Festival, the Audubon Outdoor Art Fair, a night of Young People’s Performances at the United Palace, the United Palace of Cultural Arts’ Day of Film, the Uptown/Outloud series’ inaugural reading, and, of course, the 2013 NoMAA Literary Grantee Reading, which was held on our 2nd birthday, June 17. Word Up grew out of a discussion that took place at the 2011 NoMAA Grantee Reading, so it was great to celebrate to celebrate in a way that brought it all full circle.
