SPOKEN WORD: Poetry & Power

Together we will explore themes of identity, perception and power. Participants will draw from memory and lived experience to produce a poetic piece that challenges stereotypes and societal misperceptions in order to re-write their truths.

This workshop is part of OneLife Institute's Transformative Visions series, and is offered free of charge thanks to funding from the Akonadi Foundation.
