Place inspires belonging. The landscape, our corner of the world and the community we belong to makes us who we are. Our active participation in this process is what is required of us. North Grenville Poetry Guild's commitment to the arts brings our events to you. Through poetry, we will help connect you to the inner creative force that leaves an imprint in the world around us. Through our workshops, you will learn the power of words, emotion and creativity. In community we will celebrate in music, photography and poetry the beauty we find around us, as well as the pain. Our events, from the photopoetry workshops, the Circuit and the Poem in Your Pocket Day, will bring you closer to a world of creative self-expression.
“From the idea that the self is not given to us, I think there is only one practical consequence: we have to create ourselves as a work of art.”
― Michel Foucault
Our mission is to provide you, our audience, with many different ideas, thoughts and concepts. Through experiential learning in the arts we will help you grow. Poetry is one of the ways we can reach you. We hope to capture your imagination, teach you to articulate your emotions and learn to appreciate your inherent creativity.
The vision we move forward with is process driven. Creativity is an emotional process bringing the individual to an inner place of growth. We facilitate this growth through our workshops and the content we ask you, our audience, to engage with on your journey to learn about yourself, about this place and about our world.
