Using wheat pasting as a framework, this workshop will explore the role of poetry in public space. What happens when our needs and desires are relegated to silence in the realm of the private—left unspoken, unwritten and unknown. What can be if we intervene in public life with poetry. We’ll rescue that which we feel has been subdued, writing towards its reclamation, and thinking about how to re-collectivize poetry and take back public space. If you could cover the streets in poetry, make walls talk back, what would they say?
