Thnx to everyone who attended yesterday’s BY THE RIVER lunchtime ZOOM reading — it was great to share the virtual stage with Karl Jirgens who performed some outrageous & literate works; both MA|DE members focused exclusively on presenting their solo works for this particular event, due to a time crunch we tabled our collaborative work, but hopefully we’ll read at this series again at some point in the future!
👁 For those who missed it, the reading is available in its entirety now at the BY THE RIVER READINGS YouTube channelhere
This Wed Apr 14, let’s do lunch: both members of MA|DE are doing solo readings of recent work (as well as a set of collaborative poems, of course) — and Karl Jirgens (of RAMPIKE fame) is also on the bill!
BY THE RIVER READING SERIES, 12:30pm via ZOOM … join us!
— wait, did you miss the COLLUSION Season 1 Launch Party when it went live? No worries, it’s still online, watch it today! The whole event (which celebrates the release of 3 different collaborative chapbooks, ours, plus ones featuring @conyerclayton + @manahilbanduk and Daniela Elza + Arlene Ang) clocks in at under 30min, and can be viewed in its entirety on the Collusion Books YOUTUBE Channel …
In April, we did a small poetry reading ‘A Trip to the ZZOO with MA|DE’ (4m03s) while in quarantine for TELL OUR STORIES: TOGETHER, a new series by Friends of Canadian Broadcasting supporting Canadian artists — catch it in the ‘poetry’ section of the site (you can also explore other categories, listen to some COVID-19 comedy and several very good self-isolation music performances) … enjoy!
As part Windsor’s COVID-19 creative community response, both members of MA|DE have received funding to complete solo art projects sponsored by the City of Windsor’sArts, Culture & Heritage Fund (ACHF) for release online in the coming weeks, alongside projects by many local artists — stay tuned!
