Resistance Art: Poetry of Witness– LIVE from the Middle East

Dec 14, 2016 - 11:00 AM-12:30 PM (Eastern)

This virtual Poetry Slam will connect students with several young poets from a variety of conflict settings in the Middle East as well as with experts in the field. We will look at how poetry has been used in both the past and the present to bear witness to conflict and to respond to oppression. Students will have the opportunity to share and discuss their own poetry and engage in dialogue with other students around the world and a panel of guest poets. Click here for teacher resources.
