Poetry, Presence and Empowerment Talk
For its 7th edition – which will take place at REWIRE Festival 2017 – New Emergences extends a warm invitation to the festival artists:
These three exceptional artists will come together to discuss issues based on their embodied experience of engendering poetry with activism. How poetry can empower identity, occupying a much needed platform for under-voiced artists and disengaged communities. New Emergences are excited to discuss the potency of language and expression, the power of speaking up and making people listen, and the effects of being heard.
Everyone present in the room is invited to comment or ask questions to the panel. The moderator has the role and the right to filter and move on within the discussion if and whenever necessary.
The moderators at this event will be members of the New Emergences team: Anne Wellmer – composer and performer of electronic music; and András Simongáti-Farquhar – a researcher, sound and media artist.
