Are you a socially conscious hip-hop artist or poet who is looking to inspire, be inspired and collaborate with other like-minded individuals like yourself? Join us for this monthly Poetic Recovery workshop every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month to share our own work within a supportive community. We will discuss artistic consciousness, different aspects of the cultural work, and the possibilities that potentially await you.
Bring something to write with, something to write on and you.
Suggested donation is $10.00.
The workshop host, Maurice Taylor, is an East Coast director of hip-hop congress and has been organizing open mics, poetry slams and hip-hop workshops for over 20 years. Maurice “Soulfighter” Taylor set out in 2006 to create Poetic Recovery as a platform to give voice to artists in recovery. It is a collection of cultural and educational activities that facilitate the nurturing of artists towards higher consciousness. These activities allow artists to reflect and perform for audiences from communities effected by traumatic experiences. These shared energies will help facilitate a cultural healing process between artists and community to recover of our cultural identity appropriated and exploited by the music industry that has resulted in cultural genocide.
