Found Poetry : Reclaiming Language and Redefining Material

20 July 2019 
11am - 2pm

TARQ and The Poetry Club are delighted to announce a poetry writing workshop that ties with the gallery's ongoing exhibition ‘Osmosis’.


In this workshop, participants will explore the works in the gallery through a guided tour and reflect on the idea of Osmosis and its interconnections with poetry practice.

With new poems and old, alongside the exhibit, participants will navigate the ideas of movement and migration, life and death, belonging and unbelonging, and the way these constantly shape our multi-faceted identities and cultures. While exploring these themes, participants will learn the important elements that make a good poem and be guided to attempt their own.

Participants will also learn about redefining materials and re-purposing found objects by working to create “found” poems.
