Poetry like you've never heard it before about a state that is in need of being reminded that it through struggle that we become strong, together. Kinetic Affect brings you a rousing call to remember that it is our scars that can make us beautiful. The Michigan Poem was originally commissioned by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation for it's Michigan Grantee Convening in 2011 and has since been performed to likely and even the most unlikely audiences throughout our great "mitten" state.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
