The Freedom House: A Social Justice & Poetry Workshop Series

November 10th - December 1st |  Tuesdays at 7:00 pm
Online | Zoom webinar

This workshop series will explain and interrogate the relationship between social justice and poetry. In this workshop, you will explore the question of how to use art, specifically poetry, as a tool toward justice, and in the end, freedom. Led by Badgerdog teaching artist KB, these workshops will be generative and inspiring with 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. The Freedom House is free and open to the public. Please register via Eventbrite in order to secure your spot. We recommend registering for all four sessions in order to reserve your spot.
