Tenets of all Vox Ferus programs and events:
JOY: in the work, and in the community
RECEPTIVITY: to ideas, to art, to each other
CURIOSITY: vs. criticism, vs. competition, and about new perspectives, approaches, and possibilities
RIGOR: commitment to growth, both our own and other people’s; interest in expanding perspectives rather than imposing limits
We value the potential, the experience, and the perspective each person brings. This is reflected in our words, actions, and attitudes.
We approach poems not as broken things in need of fixing, nor as objects of like or dislike, but as subjects of study and analysis, artworks whose possibilities we get to unpack.
We come ready to work. Eager to engage. Committed to creating a positive, challenging environment for everyone.
