Poetry Is Not a Luxury Day 1: Poetic Freedom (Live Podcast Taping)
Grounded in the sentiment of Audre Lorde’s 1977 essay “Poetry Is Not a Luxury,” this two-day gathering brings contemporary artists and poets together with museum audiences to explore poetry’s ability to invoke sensuality, caesura, and care. Designed by 2023 Poet-in-Residence Ama Codjoe, this convening of discussion and exchange will illuminate poetry’s role in enabling humans to imagine, dream, and craft the kind of language that precipitates political action, communal nurturing, and social change.
Free with RSVP. Registration is required. Please note that seating is limited and admittance is first-come, first served. Registration does not guarantee entry once capacity is reached.
This program will be interpreted in ASL.
