Using the arts as a common language in which all share equally as a human right, we are working together to stem violence in our communities through a 4-part event series using poetry / storytelling / video / dance / photography.
Taking place during Louisville’s Festival of Faiths, @SpreadLoveLou is a city wide event series that promotes a dialogue about violence in the Louisville community.
@SpreadLoveLou is being organized by Lance G. Newman and I.D.E.A.S. 40203 with support of Anthony Smith, Metro Louisville Office of Safe Neighborhoods, Louisville Literary Arts and Nadus Films.
Poets include: Joshua Middleton, Christina Howard, Brandon Shatter ,Marta Miranda, Jibriyll Izsrael, Jesse Lane (Sparrow), Robin G, Lance Newman, Byron Armstrong, Hodge and Keshia, Black Falcon, Amanda Mills, Theo Edmonds, Brandon Shatter, Kenny ‘Fresh’ Tutt, Amelia Susan, Isiah Fish, Charles Mcbroom, Gabe Tomlin, Amber Burns and more.
