This workshop will explain and celebrate the relationship between social justice movements and poetry. In this workshop, you will explore the question of how to use art, specifically poetry, as a tool toward justice.
Led by KB, this workshops will be a generative and inspiring space for all participants to read, write, and intentionally create community. By exploring themes such as urgency, collaboration, and history, you will leave with new ideas on how to create the poems you want to create, and how to use poetry as a jumpstart to mobilization.
KB is a poet, essayist, cultural worker, and Artivism Fellow with Broadway Advocacy Coalition. They are the author of How To Identify Yourself with a Wound (Kallisto Gaia Press, 2022) and Freedom House (Deep Vellum Publishing, 2023).
