Meet some of our MNF Grantees at this event organized by the Northampton Arts Council.
“Please join us for the first event organized by Franny Choi, the new Poet Laureate of Northampton, and Brew & Forge [MNF Grantee], an organization that builds connections between writers, artists, and social justice movements. Along with a reading by Franny, this event will showcase poets of color from across the Pioneer Valley and introduce attendees to powerful grassroots organizing happening locally. Readers include Jai Dulani, Abigail Chabitnoy, Lyrical Faith, Omkari Williams, and Cameron Awkward-Rich. Celebrate the richness of BIPOC poetry in our region, learn about local initiatives, and support writers and activists working for racial justice!
Doors open at 5:45. Admission is free. Donations are welcome and will go toward Brew & Forge’s work supporting poets and community organizers of color in Western Mass and across the Northeast.
The reading will be followed by a book signing and tabling by the Western Mass Bailout Project [MNF Grantee] and the Trans Asylum Seekers Support Network [MNF Grantee].”
