Groundings: Summit to Raise Up BIPOC Poets


This BIPOC focused Grounding will bring together poets, spoken word artists, dub & hip hop poets, students, creative writers, and word activists to pool their knowledge and know how to build cultural leadership as a means to develop, enrich, and advance our cultural communities who work with writing and language as artistic forms.

 
DateFriday, November 23, 2018 - 5:00pm to Saturday, November 24, 2018 - 6:00pm

Location

OCAD University 113 McCaul St.

This Grounding will bring together poets, spoken word artists, dub & hip hop poets, students, creative writers, and word activists to pool their knowledge and know how to build cultural leadership as a means to develop, enrich, and advance our cultural communities who work with writing and language as artistic forms.

Friday, November 23rd 

A reception will be hosted in the evening. The group will be engaged in cross cultural dialogue, sharing strategic work, networking and checking-in.

Saturday, November 24th 

A full day of discussion regarding the spoken word form, diverse poetry, and aspects of the creative writing community beyond questions and critique. We will begin to envision and develop a 5 year strategy forward as a crucial cultural, artistic, and scholarly movement. In conjunction with the new Creative Writing BFA, we will be working to position OCAD University as a local, national, and international home/hub for the creative, scholarly, and social practice work of poets, writers, language & linguistic artistic creator-activists-- many of whom are already working seamlessly across genres and disciplines. We will be working with a vartiety of sectors (community, business, education, government, arts councils, health, entertainment, etc.) to establish experiential learning opportunities for students and create sustainable professional working opportunities for our graduates. One such successful example is the development of the ‘teaching artist’ now utilized throughout Boards of Education.

This first meeting is BIPOC focused.
