Spoken Word Masterclass with Sister Outsider
This workshop will explore intersectionality and the realities we experience living multiple identities at the same time. Inspired by Gloria Anzaldua's La Fronteras/Borderlands, we will discuss the relationships various races, genders, sexualities, and languages have with each other and how we find a space to define ourselves within a world that often asks us to choose.
Sister Outsider Poetry is an award-winning duo representing two of the top three female slam poets in the world, Dominique Christina and Denice Frohman. Their tour marks the first time that two Women of the World Poetry Slam Champions have paired up. They have appeared on six national poetry slam finals stages and have six championships collectively. Inspired by the life and work of Audre Lorde, they write and perform their "otherness" into the centre and use spoken word as a tool for social change.
