Literary Figures Poetry Workshop and Exhibition
If your body could speak to you, what would it say? How would you respond?
In this four-week series, a group of female-identifying young people aged 16+ are invited to reflect on their relationship to their bodies through poetry. Participants will be guided to develop their poetry in a safe space, with the support of poet and teaching artist Eunice Andrada. In the final week, photographer Nancy Trieu will capture images of participants with their poetry presented on their bodies.
These photographs will be publicly exhibited on canvas on the exterior of HJ Daley Library.
Eunice Andrada is a Filipina poet whose first poetry collection Flood Damages (Giramondo Books) won the Anne Elder Award (2018) and was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Poetry (2019). Featured in The Guardian, ABC News and other media, she has performed her poetry in diverse international stages, from the Sydney Opera House to the UN Climate Negotiations in Paris.
Nancy Ann Trieu is an Australian-Chinese creative art director specialising in photography since 2010. She is passionate in creating powerful work with people and concepts through storytelling visuals with the use of her love of lighting. She likes scenes that delve into the ideas of complex human emotions in relation to our social conditions and our inner-selves.
