TOMORROW SPEAKS YESTERDAY is an inclusive and interactive writing workshop, facilitated by award-winning writer and educator Mojdeh Stoakley. All writing levels welcome. The workshop will explore futurism and the philosophy of history and its potential intersections in the future. The workshop will be immediately followed with a performance from The Afro+naut.

MOJDEH STOAKLEY is an award-winning writer, performer, and educator from Chicago, IL (USA). Mojdeh’s work is born of her intersectional identities as a bi-racial, gender-queer, practicing Baha’i, Afro-Futurist, public health researcher, youth worker, and survivor of violence. As the founder of »radiant devices«, Interfaith Poets, and Lethal Poetry, Director of Poets with Class at the Chicago Poetry Center, Director of the 29th National Poetry Slam, and board member of Surviving The Mic, Mojdeh has created socio-politically intentional art and curricula as well as events and workshops for artists, students, and audiences alike. Mojdeh’s also been featured by the BBC, Button Poetry, SlamFind, WBEZ, and Vocalo. Named 2019 Writer to Watch by Guild Literary Complex, 2019 Elastic Arts' Dark Matter Resident, winner of a 2019 National Spoken Word Award (for Lethal Poetry), 2019 nominee for “Best Spoken Word Artist” at the Chicago Music Awards, 2019 Poet-In-Orbit for ONE CITY ONE POET.

THE AFRO+NAUT is a slave from the past and the future that has taken residence in the present with hopes of altering the otherwise inevitable effects of repeating history. The Afro+naut & the Afro-nots is a highly collaborative and interactive Afrofuturist spoken word and music project which generates social discourse through experimental hip hop and musical poetry and is a part of The Afro+naut Lab, a multi-medium Social Practice Artist initiative selected to be incubated through Elastic Arts' 2019 Dark Matter Residency, generating film, narrative fiction, new media, visual art, and educational resources.
