Poetics of Erasure: Lessons in Poetic Perseverance

Ages:

Adult

Program Description

Event Details

This is the second session in a three-part poetry series that addresses the cycles of gentrification and the harm it causes in our communities. This session is led by Denver Native and featured poet Suzi Q. Smith. We will dive in to all the ways we as a community were able to persevere and rebuild. We will examine what the landscape of Denver has become and employ poetry exercises that make room for the grief, rage and joy that sustains. The activities will be followed by an optional reading by participants.

This event requires registration and room is limited. Please register through our presenter Collective Healing Through Art: https://forms.gle/8DxTmBr4vy3wrk2m9
