We all know the expression “a picture is worth a thousand words” but how about putting that into practice? Poets have been writing “ekphrastic” poetry for years, reflecting on paintings, drawings and sculptures, and in this workshop writer Danabelle Gutierrez will help you create your very own poem inspired by an art piece on display at the Jameel Arts Centre gallery.

The tutor: Writer, actress and photographer Danabelle Gutierrez is one of Illustrado’s 300 Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf in 2020, and has performed poetry with various groups including Dubai Poetry Slam, Rooftop Rhythms, Punch, Poeticians, Blank Space, Echoes Abu Dhabi, and the Poetryhood, as well as at Emirates Litfest, Louvre Abu Dhabi, NYU Abu Dhabi, Jameel Arts Centre, Sikka Art Festival, and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
