Event: Write Out Loud Community Building Workshop
This workshop has two central purposes. The first is to give artists tools to use in workshop facilitation such as exercises, techniques of engagement, and structuring a workshop. The second is to help artists understand the process and effort necessary to sustain spoken word community-based initiatives such as administration, communicating with potential partners, and maintaining work ethic and professionalism.
Thursday, May 1, 2014 - 4:00pm to Tuesday, April 1, 2014 - 7:00pm
The Two Twenty Board Room - 20th Street West, Saskatoon SK
This workshop is led by three spoken word artists and workshop facilitators who work with WordPlay in Vancouver, an organization that does community outreach through spoken word ( visit their website at http://www.vancouverpoetryhouse.com/word-play/). Johnny MacRae, Francis Arevalo, and Lucai Misch will be leading the workshop for spoken word facilitators from Write Out Loud, a youth led artist collective from Saskatoon with a similar mandate and practice to WordPlay. Write Out Loud and WordPlay would like to thank the Saskatchewan Arts Board for their support of this project through their Creative Partnerships program, funded by SaskCulture and Saskatchewan Lotteries.
