ARTSPEAK WRITING WORKSHOPS

This popular creative writing series continues to grow and evolve. Each ArtSpeak will be co-hosted by Blue Door Gallery poet-in-residence Golda Solomon and a special guest poet and/or musician. New themes, voices, poetry/writing forms are explored within the context of the current gallery exhibition. The leisurely workshop unfolds with sharing of writers and topics of interest, raw explorations of writing into responding to the art, and culminates with From Page To Performance. The community is invited as audience and readers, along with the workshop participants. The gallery becomes stage as we offer, From Page To Performance.

Partially funded by Poets & Writers
