Join us for a one-day workshop to write and share poetry, inspired by our current art exhibition: Art Rental Show. The 2020 Art Rental collection contains over 200 new pieces and almost 500 total works from local artists! Their artwork varies in style, experience, and medium. Our poetry will vary too. No experience is required.
At 6:00pm you’re invited to walk around the gallery and write in your own poetic style. At 7:15pm we’ll host an Open Mic for people who want to read what they have written. Andrew Warner will be hosting the Open Mic, facilitating the evening, and providing a refresher on poetic devices.
After becoming the youngest poet to win a provincial and national spoken word poetry championship in the same year (2014), Andrew Warner has published four collections of poetry, toured in 25+ cities, graduated college at 19, and created the cinematic poem A Love Letter To My Best Friend, published on Button Poetry, the world’s largest online channel for spoken word. In 2018, Andrew was named the Fund for the Arts on the North Shore’s Ruth Payne Emerging Artist Award recipient. Look out for new poetry videos, books, and more from @AndrewWarnerPoetry in 2020!
