    Event description

    In finding words, we find ourselves. 

    In finding ourselves, we find each other. 

    Join us for a nurturing afternoon uncovering found poems and connection, in a cosy creative hideout at Many Arts Studio.

    Each in our own ways, together. 

    What to expect:

    • a step-by-step introduction to found poetry
    • time to explore making your own found poems
    • bringing in different materials and art forms to complement your found poems
    • gentle sharing, witnessing, and responding - each in our own ways, together
    • present and publish your found poems in a simple origami zine
    • receive copies of each other's found poetry zines in the mail after our lovely gathering

    This gathering is open to anyone who is interested in a creative afternoon. No experience necessary. All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your favourite pen/pencil/marker. Maximum 8 participants.
