Co-Author Chiara Lanza Ilenia Casmiri
Description How can poetry impact society and inspire change? Is it possible to write a poem in around 60 minutes? This action atelier will answer both questions by proposing a hands-on and creative experience. Through the technique of erasure poetry, each participant will be able to create their own transformative poem and to engage in a collective reflection on the value of art in our age of precariousness. By erasing words with black we will be able to start a novel process of building awareness on white paper.
Topic Co-creative, transformative learning environments
Format Action atelier
