Making Together: Spoken Word Poetry Worksop «VulnerAble Me»
Saturday, June, 24th, 2-4pm in Wolfson College, The Old Combination Room (OCR)
This is a Wolfsy friendly & artsy space for making things together over the whole summer every second Saturday. If you too are continuing work over the summer in Cambridge, be it revisions, essays, dissertations, PhDs, research, etc. and want that extra precious space to keep the creative flow going or try out something artsy to relax, join us in making!
We are a group of Wolfson students craving a space to make with and through the arts, to play around and have fun!
This worksop session will specifically focus on un/folding selves in and with spoken word poetry. How can we explore vulnerability as making our way to ability in ways that surprise us and bring us joy over and over again?
There will be a chance to make some of these things:
1. Free-Painting and/or DYO Russian Doll (paint unpainted nested wooden dolls)
2. Try your hand at an Origami poem that folds its lines with rhymes, a form invented by the American poet Sean Thomas Dougherty
3. Reflect on your own/in pairs/groups and/or intimate open mic session.
This event is partly supported by WCSA and the Wolfson library. The workshop is also open to everyone else subject to space availability. Please RSVP by June 23rd.
