To celebrate the one year anniversary of the opening of the Nick Virgilio Writers House, on Saturday, May 18th, 2019, we are hosting a Festival for the Arts.

At the Nick Virgilio Writers House, we will have poetry performances and workshops for children and adults, plus face painting, origami demonstrations, and a poetry wall open to the public. Participating Waterfront South Arts Organizations will conduct scheduled activities, demonstrations, and exhibits throughout the day throughout other sites in the Waterfront South neighborhood.
