Description

Poetry Reading & Workshop: Noche Con Ariana Brown | Poesia, Community, Celebration

Location: Green Line Performing Arts Center, 329 E Garfield Blvd, Chicago, IL 60637

WRITING WORKSHOP with Ariana Brown
5:00-6:00pm - Open to 30 participants (RSVP at http://bit.ly/arbrown)
Radically Tender: Embracing our own softness can feel impossible in a world which tells us we must develop hardness in order to survive. How can we allow ourselves to find the power in tenderness, in softness? This workshop explores the capabilities of tenderness, focusing on self-care and communal care, through writing exercises and group dialogue.
