Rise & Thrive Concert Series

Through LOTUS’s Rise & Thrive program, our writing workshop alumni are invited to reflect and write poetry about their resilience, in what ways they are thriving in their life, and to collaborate with local professional artists who create their own unique art in response to and inspired by the survivor writings.

For our second annual Rise & Thrive Concert Series, Milwaukee musician Chris Porterfield will work with the writers to create original music inspired by and in response to the poems created in the workshop. The original poetry and music will be debuted live on SEPTEMBER 12th, 2024 at The Cooperage in Milwaukee.

We are so honored to, once again, share this unique and powerful project with our community, and we will need YOUR help to make it a success! Please contact if you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities or donating to the silent auction.
