Living Borders…

An Exploratory Poetry Workshop for Adults

In the current milieu of movement, migration, environmental and societal changes, poetry resonates again. It is being used as a way to understand and develop personal identities. The workshop will explore readings of poets and poetry from various parts of the world to explore different voices, issues and styles.

The word ‘home’ evokes a complex set of ideas in our time, when global
immigration and refugee-crises continue while travel for leisure and
soul-searching becomes increasingly accessible and popular. Whether
home means a set of displaced people or lost objects, or a hell you
arrived at running away from another hell, or a place with bright
prospects in the future, it is an idea deeply connected to our notions
of who we are. Through readings in poetry and writing exercises, in
this two-day workshop participants will explore the intricate links
between language, home and self.

Participants will explore fun, unique and immersive poetry forms such as Black Out poetry, Pantoum, Japanese Whispers and beautiful in-law among others!
