ARTISTS AT HOME – Online Conversation with Writer Molly Haile and Poet Jacinta White
October 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join local writer Molly Haile for conversations with our very own Hirsch Instructors. Get to know each artist’s personal story, and individual desire for creativity and inspiration. Jacinta White is the featured artist for October.
Jacinta V. White is a teaching artist, published poet, certified corporate trainer, facilitator, and coach. In 2001, she founded The Word Project (TWP) – where she uses art and poetry with individuals and groups to serve as catalysts for self-discovery and healing. For six years and counting, The Word Project has also been publishing Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing featuring poetry, creative nonfiction, and photography from across the globe.
Jacinta’s chapbook, broken ritual, was released by Finishing Line Press in 2012. She is widely published and the recipient of awards such as the first Press 53 Poetry Open Award in Poetry and the Duke Energy Regional Artist Grant from the Arts Council of Winston-Salem/Forsyth Co. Resurrecting the Bones: Born from a Journey through African-American Churches & Cemeteries in the Rural South, Jacinta’s first full-length collection, was released September 2019, by Press 53.
As a creative and entrepreneur, Jacinta firmly believes that taking time to be silent and still is a healing practice. And moving out of that stillness into the act of creating moves us into our wholeness. Whether she’s leading a training for executives, facilitating a workshop for those in grief, or writing her own story – she does it with the believe that simply giving voice to the creative spirit heals.
