Co-produced by Lamprophonic and Summer on the Hudson, AmpLit Fest is a free, daylong festival that brings authors of all backgrounds, styles, and levels of recognition to center stage.
With readings, workshops, panels, and a community market, AmpLit Fest makes one of life’s most solitary acts — writing — a public celebration.
The Emerging Writers Showcase reading will take place from 12:45 to 1:45 pm.
Poets Joshua Bennett, Desiree Bailey, Marwa Helal, Chanice Hughes-Greenberg, Aracelis Girmay, and Nkosi Nkululeko will activate and respond to Fictions through a reading of ekphrastic texts in the galleries! Each poet will share work they have written in response to specific works on view in the exhibition, and highlight the creative, interdisciplinary relationship between contemporary poetry and visual art. This program also highlights the importance of interdisciplinary relationships amongst artists seeking to expand linguistic, social and historical boundaries.
The Freya Project is a monthly fundraiser - created in the wake of the election - that will donate money to small organizations located in communities that do not embrace the vital work they perform. Every month, five women read personal essays on a theme loosely related to the organization receiving that month's donations.
