Make Love Poems ~ Live Poetry Show

Wednesday evening, four local Kelowna poets served up a live poetry show called “Make Love Poems” at heART School on Pandosy. Each poetic collaborator, collaborated collaboratively in a love poem collaborative. They wrote #hastag poems on social media leading up to their event, then pinned up #allwedoismakelovepoems Pop-Up-Poetry around Kelowna as an invitation and a gift to whomever found them. Their event included individual work and, your guessed it, collaborative works. The audience was invited to collaborate in an interactive poem, posted HERE. It was an extraordinarily creative and heart warming meeting of intellects, minds and souls. True collaboration.
