G-Cultural Environmental Justice Poetry Slam

November 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

What does Global-Cultural Environmental Justice mean to you? How might it be imagined? What might it concern specifically? How might we work in its direction with our language and actions? How might we actually go about making it? Video-record yourself with your phone or webcam as if you were on a stage and the phone or webcam were your microphone. Dress up your background(s) as your “stage” however you might like. Send submissions in the form of your poetry text and a URL for your video performance of it to symposium organizers Terry Harpold tharpold@ufl.edu or Will Hasty hasty@ufl.edu by October 25 midnight. Prize winners will be announced and appear at the livestreamed Online Slam Event on November 9, 2020. Poetry will be posted on the SONGS website at https://songs.clas.ufl.edu/. Visit the Slam Website for more information and to view some Slam Warmup Poetry at https://songs.clas.ufl.edu/g-cultural-environmental-justice-poetry-slam/.
