From Weeds We Grow- Poetry of Rowntree Mills Park: Workshops w/ Zara Rahman

Hosted by STEPS Public Art

From Weeds We Grow: Poetry of Rowntree Mills Park is a community-engaged literary project led by spoken word poet Zara Rahman, supported by STEPS Public Art as part of Arts in the Parks 2021 Programming. Participants may attend one or all of the workshops, and share their final creations on the From Weeds We Grow Web App.

Join Zara for an online workshop series exploring the use of literary devices and storytelling to create poetry rooted in Rowntree Mills Park.

No experience necessary! This is an intergenerational project open to members of the North Etobicoke communities and anyone interested in deepening their connections to Rowntree Mills Park through the creation of individual poetry in its many forms.

Registration deadline: Friday, July 23, 4pm EDT. 


The From Weeds We Grow project team is committed to the community's full participation for this project. Please indicate the supports you require during registration or contact ima@stepspublicart.org for more information.
