Beyond Oakland: August 10th and 11th

By Harriet Staff

Extending out from Oakland– where many Bay-Area poets have participated in protests in recent years– Beyond Oakland will welcome poets from Vancouver (Cecily Nicholson), Kansas City (Anne Boyer), Detroit (Marie Buck), and Montreal (Michael Nardone)– to spark a conversation about poets’s experiences participating in militant actions in and outside of Oakland.

Beyond Oakland
featuring Cecily Nicholson (Vancouver), Anne Boyer (Kansas City), Marie Buck (Detroit), and Michael Nardone (Montreal).

AUGUST 10 AND 11.

Not simply a conference, or a celebration of community, or a presumed politics, or the proper poetry, but a collective investigation of how poets have moved with and through the various militant actions of the last few years in places outside of Oakland. So an attempt to forge new solidarities across different cities, nations, and poetic & political practices. What has worked in these other locations? What can we learn from each other as militant activists, cultural workers, poets? What sort of writing might yet be written?
