Ideas Through Art: Poetry from the Personal

safe_image
Octavia Poetry Collective will lead a workshop for educators exploring poetry as a method to understand and develop personal identities.

‘Leading out of current discourse around migration, movement and identity, the workshop will create a space to explore how we individually and collectively see and understand the world.
Using creative writing, group reading, and critical discussion, we will explore the potential of poetry to address diverse personal histories. We will propose a selection of beyond-the-curriculum poets in order to re-think conventional understandings of poetry and build strategies for identifying ourselves in literature. The session includes time and support to map out ways of applying the ideas to your classroom.’

The workshop is FREE, booking is essential via Eventbrite, for more information:
