My Name is Nile Alexander also known as Nile the Poet. I throw about three events a month. At the Afrikan Poetry Theater, Brownsville community center and Rochdale community center in Jamaica Queens. My brand is called Urban Poets Movement. I have events to give people the platform to Express themselves. To destroy anxiety and fear in the communities. Also to raise awareness of culture and issues within the community. I'm applying for this grant because I am going to need a computer a photography camera, stero equipment, mics for future events. Soon I will be taking my movement global and I can use the help.
I also work for an organization called Xpsoure where I teach children Poetry. I Also teach poetry and mentor people at the Afrikan Poetry theater. Thank you for this opportunity
