Event Celebrates Poetry, New Media, Art

To celebrate National Poetry Month, UT Arlington faculty and students have organized a two-day festival, “Spark: New Media, Poetry & Art,” on April 24-25.

The brainchild of Dr. Toni Holland, a Department of English instructor, and Tore Terrasi, Assistant Professor of Art & Art History, the festival will offer creative writing and art film workshops to undergraduate and graduate students. A panel discussion on new media, poetry and music with various English and Art faculty is also scheduled.

All events will be held in the Sixth Floor Parlor of the Central Library.

“Spark” is a Festival of Ideas Global Research Institute event and sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, Department of English, Honors College and Native American Student Association.

For more information, download the event poster or email Holland at tholland@uta.edu.
