Gus simonovic: "WE" Society Poetry Workshop

Language, and poetry in particular, is a mirror of our world. It captures and reflects some of the deepest human emotions.

How do language, communication and intention, belonging, dreams, aspirations and connection relate to the changing nature of the way we live and our values? How does poetry respond to what makes us human and what it means to belong to one another?

While examining some of the poems from “WE Society Anthology 2015”, participants are invited to respond in their own voice. Within a most supportive environment, series of simple exercises will provide a platform for participants to unleash their creative potential.

Be inspired by transformational nature of poetry – reading it, speaking it, writing it. All workshop material provided, participants are invited to bring a couple of their favorite poems, to share.
