Poetry in Motion: Bridging Wor(l)ds

Join Scott Andrew Christensen as he encourages learners, staff, and passers-by to create poetry through a participatory “live” poetry kiosk theme of Connecting Wor(l)ds highlighted by the theme of diversity and inclusion.

Three Maritime writers of various cultures and backgrounds—George Elliott Clarke, Rita Joe, and Antonine Maillet—will inspire the sharing of craft via the richness of their respective Maritime-based identities. The Artist on Campus will support and guide participants as they engage their own unique voices and respective artistry as the two-day Connecting Wor(l)ds event heightens the profile of poetry on the CBU campus while recognizing and garnering interest for the 25th National Poetry Month in April 2023.

Drop by the cafeteria to visit our guest artists as they work.
