ORGANIZER: Kymberlee della Luce
Calling all poets, artists, musicians and troubadours! As part of the global event 100 Thousand Poets for Change (http://www.100tpc.org/), and in collaboration with On the Boards and Speetzfire, we are hosting a community art celebration to explore our collective and individual identities through art making and celebration.
The intention of this event is to create art and celebrate our community together. We will be watching a movie by local filmmakers at Speetzifre called “Undivided Yearning” and will create art about collective and individual identity in response to it.
How can I participate?
There are a couple of ways you can join us:
1.) We need visual artists to paint during the event, poets and storytellers to create spoken word art and musicians to tie it all together. Even if you’ve never done these things before, COME! We are all artists and we all have a voice and a story to tell. Let’s hear yours. RSVP to let us know what talent(s) you’ll be bringing and to get details about load in time.
2.) Whether you can come or not, please give us the following information to contribute to the story and collective art project. You can put it on the event wall or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please DO contribute so we can have your energy there.
Your first name.
Your zip code.
One word you would use to describe yourself.
The color you would use to describe your neighborhood (red, blue, yellow, aubergine, etc.)
If you can’t come, we would still LOVE to have your information. Please email it to email@example.com
Can I just come and watch?
I don’t want to make art but I want to help. How can I do that?
We can use food and beverage, decoration, art supplies or other in-kind donations to make this event special. Please contact Alexandra Varriano with your ideas.
We look forward to hearing your stories, seeing your faces and connecting.
Please RSVP. Seating is limited and we need to plan. Thank you!
