Three Poets in Conversation
We opened the month with a mini preview of De-Canon's larger August project. The show featured the beginning of the De-Canon library, as well as a literary exhibit of the works Stephanie Adams-Santos, Trevino Brings Plenty, and Christopher Rose.

Over the course of 23 years of romantic friendship, they have amassed large amounts of correspondence in the form of letters, shared journals, mixed tapes and videos. Centered around these physical objects produced throughout their friendship, their performance and installation examines how a relationship is made through writing and how individuals are made within a relationship.
The work is the result of a two week residency at UNA Gallery. The interactive exhibit is in constant motion and available to the public during two June weekends.
Joy as Resistance
Fundraising event held in collaboration with PURRR
PURRR's 2nd quarterly event celebrates JOY as resistance. Poets, artists, and storytellers will share work on this theme. Afterwards, we will have a DJ spinning records, space for dancing, zine making, poem writing, and hanging out.
