KoFest STORY SLAM & CELEBRATION
Sun., July 24 at 8 pm. ONE NIGHT ONLY You’ve heard of poetry slams – competitive poetry events. This is one is for first person, true stories – told live and without notes, 5 minutes or less — and on the theme of “STEPPING UP/STEPPING BACK” A benefit to keep Ko going strong, this event typically sells out, so reservations are highly recommended, and if you've got a story to tell . . .

TRANSFORMING YOUR WRITING BY RESTING YOUR MIND
A meditation and writing workshop with JUANITA ROCKWELL Whether we write for our own pleasure or for others, to be read on the page or to be spoken aloud, we want our writing to reflect our experience of the world. But our habitual thinking and the ways we tell these stories become a kind of spell of doing, of busy-ness; a spell that binds us, separates us from others, and limits our authentic expression. If we release this imprint of Doing, what might happen if we can rest in the stillness, silence and spaciousness of our Being? In this two-day, small group workshop, you will learn practices that will ...

TRANSFORMING YOUR WRITING BY CLEARING YOUR MIND (level 2)
A meditation and writing workshop with JUANITA ROCKWELL A spacious and lively restfulness can be more elusive than we might think. In this workshop we will explore practices that work with breath and body to refresh and clear obstacles of aversion, attachment and confusion. These energetic practices can facilitate a more open and aware resting of your mind in stillness, silence and spaciousness. They can also stimulate memory, imagery and imagination that can enrich our writing and our lives. The first day of this small group workshop focuses on ...
TICKETING AT KO
Ko’s workshops and performances are offered at three different pricing levels: PATRON, STANDARD and DISCOUNT.
We are a proud participant of the Card to Culture program, a collaboration between Mass Cultural Council and the Department of Transitional Assistance, the Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Nutrition Program, and the Massachusetts Health Connector.
Though the program does not subsidize arts presenters, its goal is to broaden accessibility to cultural programming by advocating for lower ticket prices for people with EBT, WIC, and ConnectorCare cards.
Most arts organizations require that you show your card at the door, but but we do not. Ko recognizes that not all people needing a discounted price are enrolled in these programs, and that one’s financial situation can change in a heartbeat. Therefore, we invite those in need to avail themselves of our DISCOUNT level tickets. And if you are able to help us provide this access to those in need, please consider purchasing your ticket at the PATRON level.
See the full list of participating organizations offering EBT, WIC, and ConnectorCare discounts.
