For those of you that don’t know, Kyd Kane is a local to global poet, artist and peace beacon!

In 2017, Kyd became the first poet/vocal artist to become a finalist in the history of ArtPrize, the largest art competition in the world, with her first entry, "broke(n)hunger". This year she will become the first poet/vocal artist to win! #intentionsettingisattractive 

Kyd is calling on her entire global network as she continues to  pull rabbit after rabbit out of her hat to get this year’s ArtPrize project done!

This year's piece is titled "LEMON•aid", which tells the story of the resilience that's required in a life that continues to hand you lemons. "LEMON•aid" takes a crucial look at the age old adage "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade" and begs the question, what if you can't because the water is poisoned. 

LEMON•aid is an experience that combines spoken word poetry with visual imagery to depict the relationship between struggle and triumph in a strained social economic infrastructure. Using poetry, Kyd Kane identifies the insufficient “aid” provided to those in underprivileged communities and reflects on the conditions of those who live there. This poetic installation draws on her own experience growing up in a place that has been referred to as the second-worst city for African Americans by Forbes Magazine. Delivered with such raw emotion and words woven rhythmically and metaphorically, while combining elements to engage all of the senses, LEMON•aid is sure to bring about an emotional connection from the audience, no matter the demographic. creating a one-of-a-kind, multi-layered experience.

Each donation will help get the project closer and closer to completion covering the following expenses:

Video Production Costs
Audio/Visual Equipment Rental
Building Materials and Construction Costs
Promotional Materials
To keep Kyd from being broke(n)hungry during the 30 day exhibition

Kyd Kane believes in the power of intention setting and lives a life fueled by peace, love gratefulness and gratitude. All contributions will be appreciated on a soul level and will be sent back out into the universe with absolute positivity. 

As we gather here,
Hearts side by side
I ask that we acknowledge the power of love
Recognize the power of a unified community
Where you and me come together to cultivate all that we need.


I plant this seed,
Setting the intention for continued growth
Setting the intention for hope and open minds
Because there has yet to be a time
In which we didn’t need those
Along with open hearts.


Hearts hoping to be filled with all those things
That make us feel so deeply for ourselves
That we organically feel for one another
Caring for each other on a level that transcends
Our need for greed and selfishness
Tapping into a space of selflessness and peace
                                                                                                                    -Kyd Kane
