For More Information

Staceyann Chin, Culture Project’s poet-in-residence, is a mainstay of WCS festivals. This year, while working on a new book, she brings new material to the festival for two nights only.

Staceyann Chin has been an “out poet and political activist” since 1998, presenting work at the Nuyorican Poets' Cafe and poetry workshops in Denmark and London. Chin was also a co-writer and performer in the Tony-nominated Russell Simmons' Def Poetry Jam on Broadway.

Her provocative and well-received personal stage memoir, Border/Clash, brought to Culture Project the heart-pounding story of a young woman's journey to womanhood as a gay, Jamaican-Chinese immigrant in America.
