2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Cynthia Dewi Oka will lead a workshop series for (im)migrant youth in Philadelphia to explore the aesthetics and political interventions offered by poetry arising out of contexts of displacement. Participants will study elements of poetry through guided discussions of selected works by national and global poets, and will receive group, peer, and one-on-one support from Cynthia. With this newly-formed writing community, Cynthia aims to guide participants towards an understanding of how colonialism and imperialism cause displacement, and encourage them to re-imagine realities that center and celebrate the lives of migrants and people of color.
