8 p.m.–9:30 p.m.
Equilibrium: May Lee Yang and Morgan Butler
Spoken Word Immersion Fellow Morgan Butler's 3-part project includes a writing workshop series for black, queer femmes entitled Writing the Warrior, a multimedia art installation on 'healing through trauma through art', and an upcoming poetry and short essay collection (that has yet to be titled!). Her goals are to establish a hub of black, queer, femme writers in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area, and provide tangible testimony (through visual and written art) on what 'healing through trauma through art' looks like.
Spoken Word Immersion Fellow May Lee Yang's The Dead Hmong Woman Project, will include facilitating conversations/workshops with various Hmong communities in MN and Wisconsin. The goal is to discuss domestic violence within my community, lead workshops to help people create poems around DV, then turn 6 poems into video poems that will be shared online and used as a DV awareness campaign.
