Forms & Features at DePaul Art Museum: Poem-making as Housekeeping: A Generative Poetry Workshop on Domestic Violence

Saturday, May 11, 2024, 2-4pm

All are welcome to a poetry discussion and creative writing workshop led by Maggie Queeney of the Poetry Foundation. Together, we will explore a wide variety of poems and domestic violence through DePaul Art Museum’s exhibition Selva Aparicio: In Memory Of. In a guided poetry-writing workshop, we will create poems that reimagine remembered domestic spaces into structures providing recognition, shelter, nourishment, and liberation for survivors. 

This free workshop will take place in-person at DePaul Art Museum. Registration is required; space is limited. Virtual attendance will not be available, and the event will not be recorded. Registration opens on Monday, April 15. This program is for adult participants, aged 18 and older. 

A counselor will be in attendance for this program, and resources for those experiencing domestic violence will be available. We are happy to provide ASL interpretation for this program. If you would benefit from any other accessibility measures, please contact the Poetry Foundation by emailing Light refreshments will be provided.
