bainAs part of its first-ever Artist-In-Residence program, Wittenberg welcomed award-winning spoken-word poet, prison activist and educator Bryonn Bain, Nov. 15-21. Sponsored by the Office of the First-Year Experience, Office of Community Service, Center for Civic & Urban Engagement and Offi ce of Student Development, the program reflects Wittenberg’s longstanding commitment to community engagement. In addition to visiting classes, Bain helped to develop a module for arts-based activism and engagement. He also worked with the Springfield community in several ways,
including engaging with incarcerated youth at the Juvenile Detention Center, and developing an arts experience for at-risk youth with Project Jericho and Forging Responsible Youth. During the week, Bain also visited with Springfield High School students and helped the local Circles Campaign.
