Currently, Art Defined Production’s primary project is establishing a monthly poetry series in the Bronx community, aiming to increase visibility as well as raise funds for the expansion of the ADP mission. The poetry events seek to draw artists and art lovers from the community, strengthening the goal of inspiring involvement and exposure to the arts. Much of the funding for developing the poetry showcases are provided by ADP. With donations obtained at these events ADP seeks to continue to present a series that will aid in the growth of ADP’s mission. Amongst the audiences ADP seeks to engage are high school students with an interest in poetry, spoken word, and lyricism eventually providing them with creative writing workshops. Additionally, ADP is seeking partnerships with other established poetry collectives to reinforce the presence of similar events within the community.
