About this event
The Fried Bannock Project is a found poetry creation project hosted by Indigenous Student Achievement Pathways (ISAP) that coincides with Indigenous Achievement Week. This event will focus on reclaiming Indigenous voice through the creation of found poetry based on various academic and artistic texts. The project is named in celebration of fried bannock—a quintessential Indigenous creation of survival, comfort and nourishment. Fried bannock brings together community.
From 11 am–2 pm each day, ISAP will host a found poetry creation station at the top of the ramp near Arts 250. This station will consist of two tables and 10–12 chairs. The station will be open to all who wish to create found poetry.
Each day, an invited guest will provide an academic or artistic text that relates to Indigenous peoples in what is now known as Canada. We will use this text to create found poetry that day. The guest will be invited to do a short introduction to the text on their assigned day at 11 am at the poetry station.
Participants can submit their poems via SurveyMonkey for a chance to win one of the following prizes: a book by Tenille Campbell, a book by Randy Morin, tickets for Logan Martin-Arcand’s play The Gay Card.
