This workshop will be the catalyst for Pose 2’s upcoming book, “Bigger Than Me.” During this workshop students will take responsibility for gathering poetic interviews and photographs, creating stories of incidents and events that serve as memorable quotes or moments during the creation of our mural on campus. The goal of this workshop is to create dialogue about the information exchanged, inspiration and growth shared between Pose, his students and the campus at large. “Bigger Than Me” aims to uncover the diverse nuances of the creative process through the usage of social media, while highlighting the collective spirit of collaboration.
