Hip-hop artists show up, rap, rhyming and improv, social justice artists are there. I never know what kind of show we're going to have which is why it is one of my favorite poetry events in Yakima. Plus the winner gets a small pile of cash,” he concluded.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Film Showing: Wild Reverence
 Yakima Valley College, in collaboration with the Yakima Environmental Learning Foundation (YELF) and Trout Unlimited (TU), presents a showing of the documentary Wild Reverence. The free event will take place Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 7:00pm in the Deccio Higher Education Center, Building 8, Parker Room.

Filmmaker Shane Anderson made a pilgrimage to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State to the rivers he once fished as a boy. His relationship with the wild steelhead and the rivers in which they met upon taught him just how precious life can be. What was once a childhood fishing trip has evolved into a journey to discover why his favorite fish is disappearing from rivers and appearing on the Endangered Species list. How could this wild and beautiful creature slip toward the abyss of extinction? Wild Reverence embarks on a quest to begin a movement to enact real change not only for the steelhead but for all ecosystems. Information provided by: http://wildsteelheadcoalition.org/2014/08/wild-reverence-film-tour-fall-2014/.
