Hull-House Summer of Theater: Mojdeh Stoakley

Mojdeh Stoakley will lead a dynamic poetry workshop and performance at Hull-House! Mojdeh is the Education Director of Poets With Class at the Chicago Poetry Center, where she designs unique and innovative programs for young children and adults alike. Mojdeh believes in the power of performance art as a catalyst for creating healthy community conversations as a way to assist individuals in managing the effects of trauma and as a tool to support the growth of social and cognitive change. You won't want to miss this opportunity to connect with your inner poet and create change!
