One Breath Rising: Ellen Hagan


Join us for a Sunday afternoon mingling of art and spoken word as One Breath Rising presents writer, performer and educator Ellen Hagan. She is the author of two poetry collections: Crowned and Hemisphere, and Watch Us Rise, a YA collaboration with Renée Watson. She has a poetry collection forthcoming from Northwestern University Press in 2020 and a middle grade novel in verse from Bloomsbury in 2021. Ellen's performance work has been showcased at The New York International Fringe and Los Angeles Women's Theater Festival. Ellen is a member of the Affrilachian Poets, Conjure Women, and is co-founder of the girlstory collective.

One Breath Rising at 440 Gallery is a monthly program that is dedicated to providing opportunities for diverse artists working in the African American tradition to collaborate, present and document their work. In conjunction with the art on exhibit at the gallery, OBR’s visiting artists present thought-provoking, challenging, and entertaining mixtures of art meets spoken word and music.
