Andrea Jenkins Minneapolis Poet


Andrea Jenkins Multi-media Experience May 19th

Posted by Andrea Jenkins on May 11, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Our May event will submerse guests in a multi-sensory experience of the work of Andrea Jenkins. She will present work called "Art is Life, Is Life Art, Life is Art, Art/Life is..." featuring poetry, performance and visual art, culminating with a preview reading of her script-in-progress voice/Love. voice/Love examines the different types of love in our lives, focusing on familial and romantic relationships, and is being developed with support from the Many Voices Fellowship at the Playwright Center. As always, we’ll end with a group discussion and feedback for the artist, followed by ping-pong and karaoke.

Andrea's work is concerned with the interplay of words, mediums and genres that can be mashed together to create a new narrative. She views her work as collage, working primarily with paper and mixed media as a visual form of curation. Taking various images that have been artfully produced for the purpose of consumerism and mixing them with social justice messages and images brings attention to the issues of inequality towards African Americans, women, Transgender women, and LGBT issues.

Andrea is a South Minneapolis-based playwright, curator, visual artist, poet, writer, spoken word artist, performer, trans activist and Bush Leadership Fellow. In addition to the Many Voices and Bush Leadership Fellowships, she was awarded Naked Stages and Verve Grants in 2010, and in 2002 she received the Loft Mentor Series Award for Poetry. Since 2006 she has co-curated the Queer Voices series at Intermedia Arts, which is the longest running GLBT reading series in the country. She is a former board member of OutFront Minnesota, Forecast Public Art, SMARTS, District 202, P-Fund, The Minnesota HIV Planning Council, The Funding Exchange, and the National Writers Union. She holds a B.A. in Human Services from Metropolitan State University, a M.S. in Community Economic Development from Southern New Hampshire University, and a MFA in Creative Writing from Hamline University. Andrea regularly performs throughout the Twin Cities and is the author of two chapbooks, "tributaries: poems celebrating black history" and "Pieces of a Scream." Her work has been published in several newspapers, journals, and anthologies. When she’s not lending her skills to almost every area of the Twin Cities art scene, she is the Minneapolis 8th Ward Senior Policy Aid in the office of Councilwoman Elizabeth Glidden.

global extermination by 2025 - And I've sent this & messaged DOD & military base's in new mexico re: Dulce's military base as well; It's gonna be a literal, human incomprehensible global bloodbath massacre & not even the word nightmare nor Crime's against humanity can scratch the surface. Including those fool's (devil court jester's) - The 'Utah Data Center', code-named "Bumblehive". And the Multiprogram Research Facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

ALL $ bought & sold out your humanity & NON-SELF owned Soul (as solely God owns ALL), but re: Even with & like THOSE upon indian reservation (no respect for THE LAND) = New Mexico's 7 mile's down Dulce military base (& their just ONE amidst USA, despite global elsewhere), but press - on your computer keyboard key's Ctrl & 'F' & search / find keyword - type in: Level 6 & see thereof text wordage around thereof:

Globalist's, misc aren't really doing what they plan on, their really just passing the time, evil - senselessly, & their talk of reducing 7 billion plus down to 500 million, huh, OH don't think it'll stop there, oh no, just so Satan who solely started this Holy War against God, can eventually 'spite' God with exhibited all human eventually narrowed down & killed, like Satan's timeless laughing off it's ass at us (having put on a clueless humor show for that beast) & deeming to God, "LOOK AT THEM ALL, YOUR SO-CALLED PRIDE & JOY, THEIR SUPPOSE TO REPRESENT YOU?!"

Huh, LISTEN . . . to our fellow human Brother, just another Son of Adam & Eve, Steven Frederic Seagal's word's very carefully & TAKE IT TO HEART!

Los Angeles County (California, USA), 88 cities & 20 + year's = vast dead & killed fellow homeless human's;

Author: Paul L. Williams.
