Plates & Poetry


A Generative & Inclusive Development Experience Exploring Food & Word

  Plates & Poetry is a community table where questions are explored while sharing in delectable food and exquisite words. Plates & Poetry connects individuals' aspirations to contextual realities through a creative workshop setting that invites participants to immerse themselves in an exploration of food and word.


Plates & Poetry is an inspiring professional development venue that offers participants an opportunity to discover what energizes and drives their purpose—with an aim toward connecting that purpose to individual and/or organizational goals.  

Events are tailored for groups and organizations and customized to engage participants equitably and accessibly around a particular theme or goal selected by the organizer, group, or the hosts (your preference).

Events are held everywhere from private homes to public arenas.
