Utopia or Dystopia – Poetry Workshop with Shirley Serviss

A sincere thank you to Shirley for facilitating the Utopia or Dystopia workshop at the McMullen Gallery at the University of Alberta Hospital on February 22, 2020. Shirley led fifteen participants through a series of writing prompts based on the gallery’s installation by Emmanuel Osahor: paintings of real and imagined landscapes within Edmonton, a living wall of tropical plants and a soundscape of the river valley. 

Thank you also to the participants for attending to make this a positive collaboration!
