Salvador Dalí said, “Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.” Before we say, before we put words to the page, we see. And what we say creates a world. Imagine that: Our vision begets our words, and our words beget a(nother) vision. To celebrate Salvador Dalí’s 117th birthday, we’ll explore his surrealist paintings and Federico García Lorca’s surrealist poems, then write our own poems, liberated from our habitual ways of seeing and saying.
NOTE: Each session's replay video will be emailed within 24 hours post-session, so you won’t miss anything if you can’t attend “live.”
