Over 50,000 students have learned to express themselves creatively through Rik's programs
Many students struggle to step out of their comfort zone...but they'd LOVE TO!
A creative culture describes a safe place to try something for the first time. It impacts everything from problem-solving, resiliency, risk-taking & team-building.
I'm here to help you develop the creative culture in your classroom so we can get your students excited to learn.
Rik's slam poetry sessions are engaging & supportive & were especially valuable for my students struggling with self-esteem & communicating.
The students were entranced. It is one thing to teach the curriculum. It is another to teach its worth in our lives. I highly recommend to other schools.

Slam Poetry was a great opportunity for our students to approach creative writing in a new way. I highly recommend Rik's slam poetry material!
Debra Bridgman, Principal, ON
There was a really powerful exchange of ideas as Rik reinforced some great poetry writing techniques that students could apply to their own writing
