OPEN MIC AGAINST GENTRIFICATION
Parc Extension & Us is a series of poetry, storytelling, creative writing and performance workshops for residents of Parc Extension of all ages, and of all levels of experience. You can drop-in any of the workshops, or attend all of them!
In this workshop series, we will be looking at some basics of storytelling, poetry and different forms of creative writing. We will specifically workshop ways to tell stories about ourselves, stories about our notions and understandings of home, and stories about our neighbourhood, Parc Extension.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE is necessary to participate in these workshops! These workshops are intended to be fun, interactive, a space for exploring the power of stories, and there will be both individual and group exercises.
— The workshops will be facilitated in English and in French, but participants are free to create in any language they wish.
— There will be food provided at each of the workshops
— No prior experience necessary
— There will be an opportunity for any participants who wish to perform their poetry in public to do at an open mic on Sunday, July 21.
THE WORKSHOPS ARE FREE
