About the Event

Experience the power of text as visual and literary elements. In this unique creative writing workshop, participants will create text to be included in artist Kristin Bauer’s augmented reality experience. Workshop participants will reflect on the elemental themes of Canal Convergence, and the collective poetry will be displayed in an AR application near Marshall Way Bridge for the duration of Canal Convergence.
