Deep's been getting around this year. 

This past week Deep Center was in New York City at Urban Word NYC's Preemptive Education Conference 2016 at the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. At the conference Deep's Megan Ave'Lallemant and Keith Miller ran a workshop on our Block by Block program's innovative approach to creative writing and youth leadership.

Keith ended up closing out the conference with a poem, one that was published in "Investigating the West Side," the book of Block by Block writing that was released at the West Side Block Party. Watch this video to see Urban Word NYC ED Michael Cirelli's introduction and Keith's reading.

In the last nine months alone Deep shared our work and unique context in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Athens, GA, and New York City. And in the next two months we'll be representing our work in Atlanta (at the gatherings for the National Writing Project and the National Council on Teachers of English) and, as one of just 200 invited guest of the National Endowment for the Arts, in Washington DC at the Future of Arts & Creativity convening.

Deep is spreading the word.
