CANCELED: Speak Up: Performance Poetry Workshop
This event has been canceled. How can poetry be used as a tool for liberation? Writer and activist Keith LaMar, who has spent almost 30 years in solitary confinement on death row in Ohio, turned to spoken word performance to find personal freedom. His story is explored in DIGEST, on view at the MSU Broad Art Museum through July 9, 2023. Led by Keith LaMar and Guillermo Delgado, Academic Specialist in Community & Socially Engaged Arts at MSU, this workshop will encourage all participants to experiment with poetic forms that transcend the written word, inspired by themes in DIGEST. Registration for this free, online event is required.
This program is presented in partnership with the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University.
