Sanctuary: A Migrant Poetry Workshop Application Form. This Leeway-funded workshop for immigrant poets pivoted after the election - Generocity Philly. When poet Cynthia Dewi Oka received a grant from the Leeway Foundation to run a workshop for migrant poets alongside Asian Arts Initiative, the mission was to build skills and expose participants to American poets writing from migrant backgrounds.
Then Nov. 8 happened, and Donald Trump won the presidential election after two years of spewing xenophobic rhetoric. His victory was immediately followed by an outpouring of hate crimes against immigrants, Muslims and people of color. Trump’s election has given Oka’s workshop new direction and purpose. “It was a skills training workshop, but now it’s a lot more content-driven around bringing [migrant] lives and struggles into the light,” Oka said. “We need to get people to pay more attention.” There’s already a “huge under-representation” of migrant artists, Oka said, especially in poetry. Oka hopes the workshop is able to bring migrants from different backgrounds together. But it will be intentionally political.
