Cognitive Creativity

Priest Hughes

Cognitive Creativity demonstrates spoken word performance poetry at its finest. Learn the various writing and performing techniques and life skills that have helped Priest Hughes mold his more than 20 years of poetic experience. This workshop is also available for a multi-workshop residency.


"I believe that by exemplifying excellence and teamwork as spoken word I can influence, change, and encourage people by example to work together towards common goals. "


"The organization of this workshop more than met my expectations. I learned some things from the artist that I will incorporate into my curriculum! A+! The artist was quite responsive to my students as individuals. He adjusted his program according to the needs of each class. The workshop is pulsed and relevant."
