Designed to engage the community, the poetry programming of Hope at Hand is a unique arts and culture experience for Duval County. Spoken word performances, poetry slams, youth poetry contests, and workshops are offered at no cost to the public. In 2019, we had over 5000 visitors during the month-long celebration. In 2020, we made the event all virtual to adapt to the pandemic, and since 2021we are hosting both virtual and in-person events!
