@ Brown University LGBTQ Center

75 Waterman St, 321 Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center
Providence RI  02906



Join the LGBTQ Center and the Sarah Doyle Women's Center as we welcome Climbing PoeTree to Brown! Climbing PoeTree uses multimedia art to address themes of racial inequality, environmental injustice, language barriers, and carving out a sense of place for oppressed identities. This dynamic duo harnesses creativity as the antidote to destruction through their multi-voice spoken word, bilingual ballads, world music, and multimedia hip hop theater. Through their work, Climbing PoeTree aims to expose injustice, and make a better future visible, immediate, and irresistible. They will be performing a medley of spoken word and musical theater followed by a 30 minute Q&A.

This event is wheelchair accessible, but please contact je-shawna_wholey@brown.edu if further accessibility needs are necessary.

A special thanks to our co-sponsors: The English Department, Office of Residential Life, The Theatre Arts and Performance Studies Department, The Pembroke Center, The Multiracial Heritage Series, The Visual Arts Department, The Music Department, and the Latinx Heritage Series.

Out for Lunch: Wednesday, April 18th 12-1 in the LGBTQ Center
Workshop: Wednesday, April 18th 7-8:30 in Salomon 003
