Poetry Is A Prompt: Community Healing Project

September 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

IPRC is honored to be selected by Creative Laureate Emeritus Subashini Ganesan and the City of Portland to create a healing through art collective project.

Poetry Is A Prompt is a collaborative poetry project that we invite you to participate in. It’s an opportunity to reflect on grief and healing from the past year of heightened racist violence and the evolving COVID pandemic, as well as the many personal losses each of us experience.

Intisar Abioto (@intisarabioto), Stephanie Adams-Santos (@tarot_obscuro), jayy dodd (@jxzz_hndz), Catie Hannigan (@glinnt), and Coleman Stevenson (@darkexact) have created first lines of poetry to inspire your writing. Crystal Thomas (@darkrystalight) has created a sculptural structure to hold your lines of poetry written on paper chain garlands.

Come visit the IPRC’s new Martha Grover Zine Library/classroom between Monday, August 16th and Saturday, September 11th on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between noon and 6PM to be, to write, and to take away journals and booklets made by IPRC staff to help you continue your healing journey through writing.

In this new stage of the pandemic, masks will continue to be required in the IPRC space.
