Kaia Sand and Jules Boykoff are performance poets and activists for political and social justice. They combined their talents to co-author the book, “Landscapes of Dissent: Guerrilla Poetry and Public Space,” a book that explores what dissent looks like when framed and made by poets, and how dissent alters our understanding of what poetry might be and become.
