Poetry Is Not a Luxury Day 2: Poetic License

Grounded in the sentiment of Audre Lorde’s 1977 essay “Poetry Is Not a Luxury,” this two-day gathering brings contemporary artists and poets together with museum audiences to explore poetry's ability to invoke sensuality, caesura, and care.

In this second day of the Poetry Is Not a Luxury program, entitled Poetic License, poets and artists will share new work, work in-progress, and artistic reflections that express Lorde’s conviction that “poetry is not a luxury.” Featuring panel discussions, poetry readings, and performances, the day will be interspersed with moments of grounding and personal reflection alongside pauses for inter-audience dialogue and connection.
