R Words: Poetry and Performance for Social Change [Nikkita Oliver]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | Nina Simone says it’s the role of the artist to show us what is, and Octavia Butler teaches us that the writer can use their words to manifest new worlds. In this class, we will explore the elements which open our eyes, preserve our stories, change our hearts, and create new narratives. Through the power of poetry and performance, we will write together to be the change we want to see in the world. R words: Resilience, Resistance, Revelation, Rise Up, Revolution, Reparations, Restoration.
