About the Workshop
It can be difficult to define oneself as an artist, but writing a strong artist biography is a great place to start. In this hour-long workshop, artist and poet, Kamari Bright will guide you through the processes of writing your artist biography. They’ll lead you through incorporating your background and artistic experience into a narrative you can use for artist calls, funding opportunities, and more!
This workshop is open to artists of all disciplines and career stages.
About the Instructor
With the goal of creating something that starts the process of healing for herself and others, Kamari Bright is a poet, videopoet, and creative that is heavily inspired by her life lessons and observations. The award-winning creator transcends the bounds of imagery and language by fortifying one with the other, creating a work more closely resemblant to the multi-sensory experiences of life. Her videopoems have been internationally received and lauded at Seattle Black Film Festival, the Film and Video Poetry Symposium, Tacoma Film Festival, and many others festivals; while their poetry has been featured in “NILVX: A Book of Magic,” “2018 Jack Straw Writers Anthology,” “Moss,” Bellwether Arts Week, and other avenues. The 2018 Jack Straw Writer is currently working on a manuscript connecting the influence of Christian folklore on present-day misogyny, and a videopoem extrapolating collective trauma and its connection to land stewardship. She currently lives, loves, and eats on the land of the Duwamish.
