Page.Stage.Engage - An Introduction to Spoken Work as Practice and Culture

Overview
Additional Information

Across the globe, the spoken word movement has reignited poetry as a force for artistic expression, critical dialogue, and community-building. As both a specific form (writing poetry that is meant to be shared aloud) and a deeper cultural practice (tracing its roots back millennia), spoken word creates space for all of us to tell our stories, make our values concrete, and speak up about the issues and ideas that matter to us. Join two-time National Poetry Slam champion Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre for a performance and discussion on these topics and more.
