How to Survive the End of the World is a four-part program series exploring the ways in which artists and art workers express social, cultural and political philosophies through their art practice. Symphony of Survival is a creative writing workshop led by Newark based poet Jasmine Mans inspired by the multimedia project of the same title. During this workshop participants will learn how to document the truth and beauty of our current moment through creative writing.

Symphony of Survival, by Newark Symphony Hall, is an archival exposé of the Black resistance: including both literary and visual arts. Artists have earnestly documented these times to ensure the record of events. Under the creative direction of poet Jasmine Mans, the Newark based contributors are Jillian M. Rock, Chrystofer Davis, LaQuan Ford, Joseph V. Moore Jr., Bimpé Fageyinbo, K Desiree’ Milwood, Dr. Antoinette Ellis-Williams, Maisy Card, and Kristen J. Owens. All have created a symphony of mourning, of protest, and survival. This project was created in honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the many others who have lost their lives to police brutality. RSVP required. Zoom details will be sent via confirmation email.
