Occoult Poetics and (Soma)tic Poetry Rituals Workshop with CA Conrad

In this two-day workshop (July 24-25), CAConrad will discuss how occult and paranormal experiences and practices of poets in the past show us the way to trusting these same forces are also alive and at work for us today. CA has successfully used (Soma)tic poetry rituals to overcome depression after the murder of their boyfriend Earth (aka Mark Holmes). CA has also created writing rituals using the night sky to design homemade star constellations, another ritual to experience what the impact of hearing the word “drone” has on the human body, and many others from talking with trees, ghosts, translating Shakespeare’s sonnets with crystals, and coping with the destroyed wilderness of our planet.

Please bring notebooks and pens as we will construct together a (Soma)tic poetry ritual for all workshop participants.

Cost: Sliding scale of $27 to $108; personalized rituals available for workshop participants on Thursday and Friday. Sliding scale of $9-$27.

In this class, our reading and discussion of good poems will frame in-class writing exercises and the creation and sharing of our own good poems.

This event will be held at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Cost: $25

"Storytelling for Social Change" Workshop

Storytelling is a powerful tool for the documentation of voices, memories and histories. It can also be a catalyst for activism and social change. In this workshop we will explore the ethics and techniques of oral history, ethnography, and storytelling as activist research methodologies. Attendees will be introduced to these three merging methodologies through a combination of short media pieces and discussions, will be invited to take a critical and analytical look at the history of documentary work, and will learn the basics of skills such as interviewing, story circle facilitation, and ethnographic observation. We will also cover the technical aspects of storytelling, providing an introduction to tools for minimal-resource and mobile audio recording.

This workshop is intended for anyone interested in developing collaborative documentary or storytelling skills, including students, community members, and staff members of organizations doing cultural, community and social-service work.

The workshop will conclude with a discussion of participants’ project ideas.
