NATURE

Be one with nature as she is one with you.

 

This 5 day workshop aims to put you back in touch with the environment and find inspiration from your natural surroundings. In this digital world, we often tend to take the authenticity of nature for granted. We forget that we would cease to exist without it and it’s gifts. So this is the opportunity to really pay attention to every inch of your surroundings as they stimulate your senses and paint beautiful scenes with your words and poetry.

Allow your poetry to paint and sculpt the things you see.

This 5-day workshop will transform your pen into a brush that you will use to paint a variety of things with your words. The objective is to allow you to isolate a variety of things from the world, using vision, to create poetry on pages that detail each subject; in the same way that an artist paints a still life or muse onto a canvas.

Explore and define the hidden intimacy of platonic love.

PLATÕNICOS   is a poetry workshop that will force you to evaluate and muse about platonic relationships, platonic love, and platonic admiration. With emphasis on intimacy and how it is not only for the bounds of romance or sex, we will challenge and defy notions that “platonic” is just another way to say “surface-level”. Explore the depths of your friendships, work connections, and even the brief encounter with the stranger on the street.
