Description:

Come meet the artists AND create next year's Ploem. Ploetry is inspirational prose cut out from planks of wood, hung from a 5-sided city-shaped tower, with color-changing backlight and custom seating. This year there are two towers, "I Am But Wood", a poem written from the point of view of the Man, and "Voice of the Temple", written from the point of view of the Temple. Next year, we want to add more Ploems, scattered as Easter Eggs around the Playa. Forms available to write and submit your own ploem 24 hours a day, and we'll post it on the Ploetry website. Write a ploem, build an installation, or both - we'll show you how. This is a workshop - all building is done off-season, off-playa. But take your inspiration to write your Ploem while in Black Rock City! *** Please note that this event takes place at the tower in the Cafe, not the tower on the open playa. *** MWF 11-noon, TT 5pm-6m, in the large Ploetry installation in Center Camp Cafe.
