Creative Expressions: Poetry Slam – Voices be Heard!
Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 5-6pm
The SUNY Empire community has a rich and varied artist community. Join us and meet our faculty, staff, student, and alumni artists to learn a little about their creative expressions, their process, and them. Our artists host a Q&A session following their presentations/performances.
Creative Expressions happen every Thursday at 5pm in Zoom at this link - https://bit.ly/CreativeExpressionSeries.
Featured on Thursday, June 25th will be live readings of poetry submitted by faculty, students, staff, and alumni. Join us for an evening of listening and reveling from the poetic voices of our SUNY Empire State College community.
We put out a call for poetry expressing the energy of exultation and indignation, embodying willfulness, sharing memories, or bearing witness. Our community responded in profound and powerful ways. Come hear their voices. Luxuriate in the artistry and performance of the spoken word.
Faculty member and award winning poet, Mindy Kronenberg; graduate student Lynn Saum (also alumna of the Classes of 2018 & 2019); and faculty member Lisa D’Adamo-Weinstein serve as your humble organizers of this first Poetry Slam session.
Weekly host: Lisa D’Adamo-Weinstein
