Bilingual Poetry Workshop with Alejandro Jimenez / Taller bilingüe de poesía con Alejandro Jimenez

Bilingual Poetry Workshop with Alejandro Jimenez / Taller bilingüe de poesía con Alejandro Jimenez Online

Focus on poetry beyond the words with TEDx Speaker/Performer and Emmy-nominated poet, Alejandro Jimenez in this bilingual workshop.

In practical terms poetry is a call to action, a unified hymn, a way to be heard, it is an invocation; poems create healing and give meaning. Poetry is not merely violets and roses, it is a means, a blueprint for self-determination and self-love. In this session participants will explore memory and nostalgia.


La poesía es más que palabras: Un taller bilingüe de poesía con Alejandro Jimenez.

En términos prácticos, la poesía es una llamada de acción, un canto unido, una madera de ejercer nuestra voz, es invocación; los poemas curan heridas y dan significado. La poesía no solo se trata de escribir sobre rosas y violetas, es un vehículo, un plano de autodeterminación y amor propio.  En la sesión los participantes explorarán la memoria y nostalgia.
