Anacosita Exposed (AnEx) – Anacostia Exposed is an ongoing community documentary initiative. The first project of AnEx was a photography and poetry collaboration, supported by Arch Development Corporation, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast Exposed Archives and Photography Gallery.

Center For Poetic Thought  (716 Monroe St NE Studio #25 @ Monroe Street Market) – The Center for Poetic Thought (CPT) is a collaborative space co-founded by Poet Fred Joiner and the American Poetry Museum in September 2013.  The purpose of CPT is to cultivate, demonstrate, and curate the exhibition of creative work that displays the many ways that poetry occurs in American life and beyond.  The space will host poetry readings, performances, workshops, exhibits, and presentations of all types that celebrate how poetry is lived every day. This project is partially funded by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

INTERSECTIONS – INTERSECTIONS is a reading series developed in partnership with the American Poetry Museum. The series brought local, national and international writers to Anacostia and other parts of Washington, DC to share their work with the Greater Washington DC literary community.

Digital Archiving Project – DAP is my ongoing personal archiving project of  digital recordings of a wide array of lectures, performances, reading and other events for the purpose of documenting cultue as it happening. My hope is to identify an institutional or academic partner to further archive, edit, index and store these recordings for further study or use by artists and scholars for the generation of other creative and scholarly work.
