A cypher is a circle of energy where artists share their craft. Young artists of all genres are invited to build and hone their artistic gifts. They may even be inspired to create something on the spot.

Thompson is a teacher, lecturer and founder of The Poetry Project, where he uses poetry as a catalyst for literacy, leadership and service. He is the host of The Poetry Café on WNAA 90.1 FM, airing poetry, hip-hop and R&B every Tuesday from 6-7 pm.

The Poetry Café’s Youth Cypher Series at the Xperience @ Caldcleugh is presented by the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with Guilford County Schools Arts. For more information about Xperience @ Caldcleugh programs, visit
