Poems of Their Future | An Evening Of Poetry and Performance

Poems of Their Future is an expression of reflection. In response to Theaster Gates’s The Gift and The Renege, Poems of Their Future features poetry, music, and dance to build upon themes of history and heritage as these things exist sacredly in Freedmen’s Town. Poems of Their Future artistically echoes a call for preservation and education of Houston’s mother ward as it includes performances by Houston Poet Laureate Aris Kian, award-winning composer and Freedmen’s Town resident and multidisciplinary writer/artist Avalon Hogans.

History, Houston, and Collage

The workshop History, Houston, andCollage blends historical images, documents, and ephemera of Houston's past with contemporary collage for a fun-filled analog exercise in archival study. From Freedmen's Town to Third Ward, downtown to Fifth Ward, we will learn intimate details and happenings that make Houston the culturally rich metropolis it is now. A deep dive into the imagery of this past will help us create interesting and abstract collages to take home.
