The Poet’s Project | Barrie, Ontario
Andrina (Lewis.theArtist) is a multifaceted Black artist, poet, performer, and storyteller. Influenced by her poetry and prose, her artwork is colourful, bold, and wild embracing afrocentric hairstyles, tattoos, scars, and outfits. She aspires to develop creative workshops and public art that bring together community members of all ages. The ultimate goal of her practice is to grasp and emit vulnerability, transparency, and humanism. She believes artistry is the foundation of community strength and resiliency.
About the Project
Using introspection and meditation on our past/present experiences and hopes for a better future, this project will encourage its participants to create poetry and artistic designs to be presented to members and visitors to Simcoe County in a theatre setting. The creation could be beautiful, emotional, thought provoking, or peaceful. This is in hopes that we learn and understand the various cultures, values, and beliefs that have been shared by the participants.
