The Bigger Picture In Action

The Bigger Picture does much more than make short films. Our poets perform at events ranging from festivals and conferences to schools and political actions. We facilitate school assemblies and lunch activities at high schools, pop up at community events with Canzilla, and partner with organizations to bring events to life like the Hip Hop Green Dinners and the annual Free Breakfast Program at Life is Living in Oakland.

Join us in action: Watch videos of some of our past activities below, check our calendar to see where we’ll be next, and catch The Bigger Picture in action in your community!

In Schools

The Bigger Picture assemblies run from 45 to 60 minutes long and feature some of the most talented spoken word artists in the Bay Area as well as an interactive PowerPoint Presentation that includes some of our short films.

All assemblies are appropriate for middle and high school students and are combined with The Bigger Picture Presents Recess, an assortment of activities during lunch to continue the conversation started in the assembly and encourage students to play.
