All are welcome to a poetry discussion and creative writing workshop in conversation with the Block Museum of Art exhibition Caravans of Gold, Fragments in Time. Together, we will read and discuss poetry of migration, fragmentation, and translation. In response to the exhibitions, participants will compose original poems exploring the experience of migration and the legacies various migrations have left behind. Maggie Queeney of The Poetry Foundation will lead the session. Space is limited. Registration is required.

Presented by The Block Museum in partnership with The Poetry Foundation.
