Still Waters seeks opportunities to evolve with its young people. In 2010, we earned a grant from the MPS Partnership for the Arts which supported paid internships for program grads to become coaches and instructors. In 2015, we earned a grant from the Bader Foundation to realize a fellowship experience for three alumni to spend a year building networks, perspective, vision and personal brand.
The Flow Write Creativity and Writing Retreat is a field trip event held at Wisconsin Black Historical Museum. Groups of up to 100 students spend the day moving through interactive games, challenges and conversations with SWC teaching artists. Students enjoy performances and the chance to showcase their voices at the end of the day.
Poetry Slam teams from fourteen area high schools participate each year in the Milwaukee High School Slam League. Milwaukee School of Languages emerged as the 2017 City Finals Champs.
