NoWords began as a project-based community engagement initiative designed to connect people to art and gardening (and with each other). Offering free poetry and visual art workshops to the public allowed us to create platforms that gave people a chance to improvise and communicate auditorily, visually and with expression; and to appreciate the benefits of outdoor spaces.
Inspired by the humble beginnings of making functional art from reclaimed materials, NoWords.Space (as it became known) & LUV is Cool hosts a monthly Trash Talk: Reconstructing Thoughts poetry workshop. "The idea behind creating this event was to connect and inspire people through the written word and language so that we may remember how to best speak to each other again," says founder, Dalila Brooks. Working together toward a common goal by building something each person could benefit from, has been our mission.
