Outside Voices Inclusive Poetry Workshop
June 6, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Inclusive poetry workshop @ Positive Exposure
Members of the poetry collective Poets, of Course will be collaborating with Positive Exposure on a creative poetry workshop for all ages and abilities. We hope to gather in community in order to experience an afternoon of joyful creativity without judgment. First time poets and fearful poets, this one is for you! We will write and share our work together in celebration of the many dimensions of creativity. The poets are veteran performers who are a regular part of the NYC Poetry Festival and have also contributed to events at CUNY and local independent bookshops. We are a collective of creative people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our normal might not be your normal. We are smooth and soft like ice cream on a hot day. We occupy new dimensions. We respect each other and help each other. The group is an arena for expressing our basic feelings about our lives. We include and acknowledge our partnerships with the direct support professionals that support us. We are dazzling and proudly present our neurodivergent creativity for all.
