In collaboration with WordPlay Cincy, Out of the Heart is a creative and encouraging session designed to strengthen your skills for written poetry while learning the basics and fundamentals of spoken word as a form of expression. Receive hands-on coaching and training that you’ll get to put into practice through an engaging and rewarding workshop experience. When it’s all said and done, you’ll have a brand new spoken word piece that you created applying everything you’ve learned that can then be shared with the world!

Join us again on Saturday, April 23rd for an opportunity to take the mic and perform your pieces during Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s Community Days Celebration. Emceed by instructor Laurent Che, featuring spoken word performances from Laurent & Out of the Heart workshop participants. 

COVID-19 Health & Safety:
Based on the current CDC guidelines and the recent decline in COVID-19 cases across our region, Kennedy Heights Arts Center announces these changes to our health and safety protocols.
Effective March 19, 2022, guests will no longer be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test certification to attend events, and the wearing of masks in our facilities will be optional. Masks will continue to be required in all classes currently in progress through the end of the Winter Term.
This announcement comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) publication of its latest guidance on COVID-19, which is based on hospitalization data and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Hamilton County is currently categorized by the CDC in the “Low” COVID-19 community level.
Thank you for your continued flexibility as we adapt our responses to meet our community’s needs and keep creativity alive during these challenging times.
