Creative Suitland Arts Center, The Capital Market, and Poetry X Hunger invites you to Poetry and Produce, a creative experience to include open mics, notable spoken word artists, poetry readings, interactive visual art stations and more! The Poetry and Produce program seeks to highlight food insecurity issues through the art of poetry and spoken word.

Beginning Sunday, June 6th through October from 12:00pm to 4:00pm at Creative Suitland Arts Center, 4719 Silver Hill Road, Suitland, Maryland 20746.

Creative Suitland is an arts-based community development strategy to include residents and businesses in defining the cultural and creative spirit of greater Suitland area. The Greater Suitland area considers the central Prince George’s County communities of Suitland, Coral Hills, Silver Hill, Forestville, Capitol Heights, District Heights, Camp Springs, Hillcrest Heights, Marlow Heights, & Temple Hills.

The Capital Market provides healthy and affordable food to residents and supports the growth of local businesses owned and operated by people of color. Their market welcomes people from all backgrounds to buy and sell, they recognize the impact racism has on our food system, and they work hard to reverse that damage by advocating for those most affected by systemic racism.
Poetry X Hunger is an informal initiative focused on intentionally inspiring poetry that addresses the cause of preventing and eliminating hunger. The overall approach is to augment the traditionally cited, tragic hunger statistics with heartfelt, powerful poetry as an innovative way of reaching the public and public policy decision makers.

All events are open to the public, respecting Covid safety guidelines. Activities are drop-in participation for all ages. Invite family and friends to bring awareness to eliminating food insecurity and hunger.

Creative Suitland Arts Center is located at 4719 Silver Hill Road, Suitland, Maryland 20746.
