Collage of Words: Creating Meaning through Found Poetry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Poems are composed of recycled words and ideas. Found poetry is an intentional collage of words – a form of writing that allows for radical repurposing, remixing, chopping, deleting, and mending. Through found poetry, we can deconstruct texts and media that are problematic, while creating new media and making new connections. Using different texts and exploring found poetry techniques, participants will create visual poem collages. Participants will express their ideas by examining and deconstructing the words of others.
