The inaugural theme of The Nantucket Project was "Rethink." Every speaker, including the poet Sarah Kay, was given this theme as a prompt for their talk. In the video below, Sarah Kay performs the poem she composed on this theme.

In 2004, Sarah founded Project V.O.I.C.E. and has since taught Spoken Word Poetry to students of all ages in classrooms and workshops all over the world.
