Event description

Description

June Perkins will share some ways in which the visual arts can inspire poetry. Participants will be invited to write their own poetry interacting with the Illumine Exhibit. They can also bring along a photograph or visual arts piece that they would like to write about.

This workshop is suitable for youth and adults who love both art, photography and poetry, or who are visual artists beginning to develop their poetic skills.

Although the workshop formally concludes at 3pm participants are welcome to continue on in the space writing their visually inspired poetry until 4pm if they wish and to chat about poetry and art.

Biography

June has been a poet since childhood, and has had many poems published, in collections of Pacific, Far North Queensland and Baha'i Writers during that time. She crowd funded and published the well received illustrated poetry collection for children and families, Magic Fish Dreaming. She recently shared her poetry and participated in a panel at the Queensland Poetry Festival.

June regularly contributes photographs to the Nineteen Months website, and attaches written reflections and quotes that speak with her photographs for this. Her blogs often include her own photography. She is generally interested in working across art forms as well as in the empowerment of youth and adults through writing.
