Be here; be poetry.

DIORAMA is NYC's event series of poetry, intimacy, and vulnerability. A world where we dispose of the podium and stage, and interweave you in a space built of language, shape, and sound.

We believe in artistry. That poetry is an intimate art, bodily, and specific to its creator just as dance and singing are. We present evocative poets, those who bring startling imagery and sensitivity to their sound. Woven among our poets are singers, dancers, and musicians of merit; equal creators, rather than diversion.

We are the hull of a ship, inside, the floor of the forest at night, the act of revealing. We are poetry come to life.
