We are very excited to announce new workshops for the fall, winter, and spring.  The public is invited to join zoom and outdoor workshops led by Monica Jahan Bose and co-facilitated by artist Maps Glover in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 to compose poetry and make art on themes of the pandemic, race, gender, and climate justice.  Thursday’s workshop will involve discussions about the pandemic and the upcoming elections, listening to a new sound art piece, and responding with art, writing, and poetry.

Please join us for an in-person first fall poetry and art workshop. We will meet on the sidewalk in front of DCAC and chairs will be provided. Future workshops will be mostly online through Zoom. Those who fully participate in at least two workshops will receive a small stipend. If you do not have access to internet or devices to continue on Zoom, please let us know by emailing
