“Can’t Keep Us Down” Queering Expression of Healing and Resistance
Spoken Word Workshop
With Roselyne D-G
August is Pride Month in Ottawa, and LGBTQIA+ experiences of sexual violence are often marginalized. Join local spoken word artist and activist Roselyne D-G as she guides participants through exploring expression through spoken word. Poetry can be a powerful way of expressing ones experiences of strength and hope. “Spoken Word” is an umbrella term. It refers to poetry that is read aloud; it may contain elements of theater, stand-up comedy, storytelling, rhetoric, jazz, hip hop, or other forms.
You do not need any experience!
Information table will be set up with local resources for LGBTQIA+ survivors.
Priority for participation will be giving to folks from LGBTQIA+ communities
