Patrick will share his thoughts on the intersection of creativity, personal growth and social justice. In this presentation, creative artists (in the broad sense) will be strongly encouraged to advocate for those in our society who are experiencing extreme poverty and/or a condition of powerlessness. Mr. Frank will share from his repertoire of song lyrics and poetry and will encourage participants to share relevant creative work or personal experience.
Patrick is a poet/essayist/songwriter with a teaching/counseling background, a former civil rights worker and an advocate for the poor from the Asheville, NC. His work has been published in numerous periodicals. Copies of his book of song lyrics--entitled Back to the Sun--will be available for purchase at this event. It is also available for purchase through Amazon under the pen name, Patrick Gene Frank.
