Isabel Jackson, who is the event organizer, commented: “This (event) will take place in an intimate and non-intimidating setting. Attendees may read their own work or have someone else read it. Participation is highly encouraged. All present will have the option to simply listen.” Some of the past participants include George Barfield, Pearl Blaylock, Bill Brady, David Brady, Penn Campbell, Debra Davis, Sue Goens, Darlene Hawkins, Marnie Heyn, Jeanette Holton, Isabel Jackson, Rev. Laurie Hartzell, Julie Kortidis, Eileen (Bean) Klusendorf, Linda Lobik, Gary McCormick, Maggie Mendus, and Rev. Emeritus Doug Petersen, students from St. Joseph High School and Lake Michigan College.

Rev. Hartzell, who is the minister at this church, commented about ArtsBridge: “In a community that is often known for its racial and socio-economic divisions, ArtsBridge provides a safe space where people can come together through the creative and performing arts. There is incredible talent throughout our community—what a joy to share in it together.”

Admission is free, donations accepted. A reception will follow the program.

All programs start at 4 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church and are absolutely free.
