No Words Collective

F&M's No Words Collective is a creative social justice project that strives to continue a dialogue on campus to increase our sense of community and inclusiveness. By collecting the F&M community's anonymous thoughts,  No Words Collective aims to ignite productive, open, real-world conversations; to give the most vulnerable members of our community a voice; and to use art as a vehicle for wider change. 


Poetry Paths

Poetry Paths is a public visual and literary art project founded and produced by the Philadelphia Alumni Writers House at Franklin & Marshall College with funding from the Lancaster County Community Foundation.  The goal of Poetry Paths is to bring enduring and inspiring poetry and visual art into people’s everyday lives through both poetry programming in public schools and community centers AND a city-wide public art project. Poetry Paths in the Schools and Community sponsors poetry writing workshops for three hundred children annually in Lancaster’s public elementary and middle schools.  Poetry Paths in the Streets, the public art project, will introduces poetry’s words into the Lancaster streetscape with art installations that features poetry throughout the city.    Please visit poetrypaths.org for more information.
