A Pure Poet Is?
An individual artist or not dedicated to educating people in the art of the written word, especially children. It is to reach out and touch the mind of the person in need. It is to spread the art of poetry around the world and bring nations and cultures together. Over the years of the Society, we have used all efforts and fund raising to benefit local youth projects.
In forming J.U.I.C.E. (Juveniles In a Community Effort), These youth were educated in a structured military style fashion with reward and pro-motion being earned by academic achievement. Since 2004, we have successfully graduated three classes of cadets, as our motto is now “Never give up.” In addition to other youth projects, we have broadcast on 1520 Hawk Radio through Hillsborough Community College in the past featuring local poets, musician, comedians and local politicians live on the air, and are in the process of getting back on the air soon. It is our goal to provide an open forum for the poet and the poet enthusiast.
We invite you to visit us on face to participate in Triple Talent Tuesday coming soon In Historic Ybor City assisting aspiring artist in perfecting the Art of Poetry and entertainment in Unity in the Community, screams the Pure Poets Society who in the past five years has placed over sixty computers in the homes that lacked that technology. In addition to graduating the Classes of Cadet in the Juice program and assisting several young men get into college. I was over whelmed that in 2005 homes in America did not have this technology. Simultaneously HCC asked PPS if we wanted some computers and that is how it all began, and thank to Hillsborough Community College and this year blessed our summer program with much of the resources to insure success.
This made possible with a partnership with the Ybor Art Studio hosting a competition for our communities youth. We are asking them to think about our environment and human survival, then to come up with a creative way to express their feelings, be it through; Poem, Song, Skit, Short Film, Painting, Dance, or. We secured donations from an awesome part of the Historic Ybor City community, and that we thank you all of you for support. Other donations made sure everyone was winner, Publix, Casper’s Corp., Blues Ship Café, Gaspar’s Grotto, Howard Johnson we thank you for your support, right on
