Upcoming Events


Wednesday, November 29. 2023

The Wednesday, November 29 Cross-Pollinations event features poets Elee Kraljii Gardiner and Isabella Wang on the theme of their poetic expressions of medical events. In this conversation between long-time friends of different generations, Elee and Isabella discuss what happens when we shift the paradigm from the idea of “dying for one’s art” to ideas of agency and care, creating art that takes care of its maker. Elee will read from her award-winning collection Trauma Head about vertebral artery dissection and stroke and Isabella will share excerpts from her manuscript in-progress, Subscript: Annotating Long-Illness, a creative auto-theoretical work that speaks to her cancer diagnosis, sifting through her medical documents and the writings of Roland Barthes to express her experiences of navigating the health system as a whole.
