Memory Cloud - Haiku workshop

The Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art at the DIA and MOCAD are partnering with InsideOut Literary Arts Project to present a Haiku workshop for high school students (and the young at heart). Attendees will be coached in this ancient tradition in order to develop short phrases and haikus which will be texted and written in smoke on Woodward Avenue as part of the DIA's Event Memory Cloud: Detroit presented by artist collective Memory Cloud the following week. At the MOCAD workshop, images from the City of Detroit will be projected in a large format to be taken as subjects of inspiration for poems and writings composed by attendees of this short workshop/class run by InsideOut founder Terry Blackhawk with IO Community Projects Coordinator Aricka Foreman.

The event is sponsored by the Detroit Institute of Arts, funded by the Dr. and Mrs. George Kamperman Fund and Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art, in cooperation with Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Please Join in us for this Free WORKSHOP from 2-4pm at MOCAD.
