Online workshops: 5/30, 6/1, 6/6, 6/8 with performance on 6/9. This two-week poetry workshop will focus on the particulars of what it means to live, work, create, love, and grieve in Baltimore. We will use the city as our lens to declare our creative visions, describe our neighbor/hood(s), document that which we love and have lost, and explore new approaches to writing (and reading) poetry. There will be generative creative prompts to get your poetic juices flowing. One-on-one sessions will also be scheduled to discuss current and future projects, opportunities, and sources of support.
Join us for a live music and abstract painting experience featuring American contemporary artist, Katie Pumphrey and saxophonist, flutist, and vocalist Ray Winder.
Enjoy a sight and sound experience inspired by Joan Mitchell’s life, musical influences, and breathtaking abstract paintings that evoke landscapes, memories, poetry, and music.
