Tulare County Weekly Calendar

NOTE: Most events have been cancelled, postponed or gone viral.

Below are listings for the month of March, 2021:

The Arts Consortium

  • The Arts Consortium’s F1rst Friday event in March will be a virtual show featuring the County Poetry Out Loud Competition. Poetry Out Loud inspires in high school students the confidence to make themselves heard, using one of the most powerful tools at their disposal—art. Poetry in education has experienced a Renaissance through Poetry Out Loud. Students are given the opportunity to interact with the words of the masters through recitation, building a relationship with the works and creating a sense of shared ownership branded by their own technique of volume, pitch, pace, and personal point of view. California proudly holds court as home to the largest Poetry Out Loud competition in the country, growing steadily since its start in 2005. Join us on March 5th at 5:00 p.m. online via YouTube on our Arts Consortium Facebook page or Instagram and enjoy the show!
