CALL FOR WRITERS:
Romeo Gongora is looking for English-language poets, writers, and story-tellers to share their work in the context of this inter-disciplinary exhibition, Just Watch Me, an exhibition that examines the geopolitical spaces of Quebec’s identities.
This would take the form of a performative/participative reading. Some key words for themes: identity, collectivity, society.
The project, inspired by artistic collectives emerging from the Quiet Revolution in Quebec, aims to convert the gallery space into a place for social exchange, and will feature a variety of events such as workshops, conferences, screenings, and poetry readings.
The series will take place every Friday, between 16h30-17h30 (September 12th, 19th, 26th and October 3rd, 10th) at the Ellen and Bina Leonard Gallery.
Writers should send a sample of their work and a brief bio to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This reading series is organized by La Tournure, an independant publishing collective. For more information on the group, please consult their website athttp://latournure.org/
