The Writer’s Block @ the DIA
Join HFS, family members and friends of incarcerated artists
SATURDAY, February 28th 1-3pm
In the DIEGO RIVERA COURT 2nd level of the DIA
Free and open to the public
The Writer’s Block is a poetry workshop at Macomb Correctional Facility (more background @HFS). HFS facilitators and incarcerated artists have been collaborating over the last few years to compile various works of art to present to the public. With the support of the DIA this collaboration will come to fruition with an afternoon of poetry read by friends and family of Writer’s Block Poets. On display will be audio recordings, Writer’s Block publications and various works of art created by Writer’s Block artists and other incarcerated people over the last two years.
The DIA Event was a SMASH
Thanks to all who attended and helped make the event a memorable one. We have had so much positive feedback that we intend to do it again next year. Special thanks to family and friends of Writer’s Block artists for the courageous and inspiring readings. Please stay tuned for the release of a collection of Writer’s Block poems and other artwork in book form.
Warmly in solidarity,
HFS and Writer’s Block
