Polly Orr is a recent graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design. Engaged in exploring the structures of belonging, her practice spans workshops, community collaborations, and performance. Polly will be presenting a workshop titled «Not All That We've Been Told» at The Works Festival 2017. This poetry workshop is open to the public, and workshop participants will be working with Canadian literature and making the pages of these books into erasure poems. By crossing out and highlighting the original texts, new poetry will be made that either subverts or expands upon established ideas about Canada and its people. This workshop will discuss both the importance of the stories we inherent, and also the liberatory qualities of being permitted to re-write what we no longer wish to pass forward.
