Poetry workshop with Naavikaran

Are you an aspiring or emerging writer with a passion for social change?

You are invited to share your honest and authentic stories and feel the power of shared storytelling with writer, artist and all-round goddess Naavikaran, as part of her residency at MoB.

This poetry workshop will examine ideas of belonging, diversity and community while keeping a firm eye towards the future. In this half-day workshop, you’ll harness the power of poetry to challenge perceptions, champion inclusivity and advocate for social change.

Explore your identity beyond socially prescribed labels and political spheres and create beautiful and uninhibited work. You will even have the opportunity to help inform Naavikaran’s performance Chaar Rastha at the Museum in April 2022.

All styles and skill levels welcome.

Light refreshment provided.

As the BrisAsia Stories Artist in Residence (1 – 20 February 2022), Naavikaran will activate the MoB Studio as a space to encourage cross-cultural dialogue and investigate the profound experience of being. Find out more here.
