Call for Poetry/Writing



The World We Live(d) In 

How have our views on issues like race, inequality, climate change, gender, and immigration changed through the course of history? How have past poets and contemporary poets—like you— interpreted these views? Join the Indiana Writers Center, Dance Kaleidoscope, Indianapolis Art Center, Jewish Community Relations Council, and JCC for an artistic exploration of our community’s ideas, values, and revolutionary thoughts. The IWC will publish an online anthology of poetry about social justice issues, a selection of which will be choreographed and performed by DK dancers at the JCC on Sunday, November 10 as part of the 2019 Spirit & Place Festival. Attendees will also have the opportunity to create their own “blackout” or “book” poems in a guided art-making experience with Indianapolis Art Center teaching artists.
