University of Arizona Poetry Center Family Days – Voices, Inc. Workshop

VOICES, Inc. cyanotype-inspired poetry workshop!

VOICES, Inc., is a nonprofit organization that documents Tucson’s community stories and inspires individuals to explore themselves and their connection to place. Join VOICES, Inc., for a fun and highly interactive creative adventure using beautiful cyanotype photographs as our visual muse as we play with words to create poems in fast-paced time bursts. The cyanotypes, created by City High School students in our wet darkroom photography program, are blue-toned photographs that are both vibrant and haunting, clear and abstract – fertile ground for imaginative word play!
