Workshop and Group Exhibition / I do not have a home
Adelaide City Library Poet in Residence, Jennifer Eadie will work with workshop participants to create written and spoken poetry that will form part of a multimedia group exhibition to be held at the library during January – February 2018. The exhibition will showcase poetry produced by workshop participants – the exhibition will include an audio recording of each poem accompanied by a photographic portrait of poet and poem.
Each workshop will explore the connection between place and belonging / what it means to feel connected or disconnected to the ground your standing on / how do we create connection to a place that is not our home?The project defines poetry as words written from the heart. Workshops will explore free-verse, Dadaism, narrative, lyrical, eco-poetics, and spoken-word approaches to writing poetry.
People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to attend one or all workshops. All materials will be provided.
RSVP required. Workshops will run throughout January 2018: http://www.cityofadelaide.com.
