The Art of Me at PRI

Upstream Arts Teaching Artist and Participants rehearsing for The Art of Me


Upstream Arts and Partnership Resources, Inc. (PRI) are thrilled to present a new original performance this coming Thursday, July 30!

Proud playing on the drums
Just chillin’ to my music
Calming my nerves
All those lunch meetings
Get me doing the Trokon Reno dance
Everybody likes it
Sister tiger arguments roaring
Like a howling coyote in worried winter
Therapeutic walks in the country
Friends figure out my wringing hands
Mmm… Yesss.

– Poem collaboratively written by Upstream Arts participants at PRI
