The Art of Connection: Poet Talk-Back and Literary Open Mic

  • The Fabric Workshop 1214 Arch Street Philadelphia, PA 19107 (map)

This fall Interfaith Philadelphia is partnering with Peace Day Philly, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, Interfaith Music Project, and ArtWell to bring a public series exploring art and performance as an entry point into interfaith engagement. Join local poets, including former Philadelphia Youth Poet Laureate Husnaa Hashim, Cathleen Cohen, and Chelsea Jackson-Loesch as they read/perform their work and share how they use poetry to better understand themselves, and explore their faith and identity in conversation with former Philadelphia Poet Laureate Yolanda Wisher. Following the talk-back there will be an optional creative activity, and a literary open mic focused on identity, faith, and social justice, so feel free to come with work to read!
