Here's what's up at the Preston Bradley Center, located at 941 W Lawrence:
- #1 workshop: Illustrated Poetry
Friday evening March 15th, 6-8pm -- 4th floor studios at Uptown Arts Center
Words have rhythm and movement when read in our daily lives -- but how can they move on their own? The Illustrated Poetry workshop will explore how writing that comes from a community can have its own shape, behavior, and movement. Participants will use techniques in automatic writing to produce material about various communities in their lives -- friends, family, their neighborhood, and Chicago. Through sharing and discussion, they will create visual paper works that pop from the page with their powerful words.
