CANCELLED: Poetry Slam "Express Yourself" at Silver Moon Brewing

Monday, August 30, 2021
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location
Bend
CANCELLED
Description
This event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Join us for an evening of poetry, expression, and friendly competition. All writers and readers and word-lovers invited to attend and read at our open mic and poetry slam: Express Yourself.

The intention of this space is to cultivate a deeply rooted, intersectional community through art. We aim to cultivate a sense of safety and belonging in an intentional container where we honor each other and the beingness of many different kinds of people. We also aim to cultivate this as a trauma-informed space and we recognize that our deepest expression can often go hand-in-hand with our deepest wounds. If your poetry contains topics that may trigger others, we ask you to please provide a trigger warning and express desire for consent from the community. That could look something like, "Trigger warning: this poem addresses the trauma of assault.

We'd love your feedback and suggestions regarding library programming. Take the survey at http://dpl.pub/programsurvey2122
