HEATHER IRELAND ROBINSON attended a city arts festival in Grant Park with her parents and little brother in 1977. She made a doll out of recycled plastic cast-aways. She saw the daughter of a family friend with her face covered in plaster of paris - a soon-to-be mask. In 1981 her grandfather came to see her in a recorder concert at school. She hasn't been the same since.
Since then she has received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from DePaul. She's been onstage with MPAACT, Pegasus Players, Redmoon, The Goodman and more. She has managed arts and community education programs for The Jazz Institute, The Chicago Park District, Marwen, The After School Matters and LISC's Elev8 Program at Reavis Elementary.
She lives on the southside of Chicago with her husband, two sons and their three hermit crabs.
We are pumped from Brave New Voices 2010! We sent 5 uber-talented young people to Los Angeles for this annual international youth poetry festival that brings 400+ youth from around the world to unite through poetry and get free.
We began our 10-week poetry workshops, Finding Your Truth: A Journey Through Writing and Spoken Word on October 23rd.
