The Vancouver Poetry House presents feature poet, Truth is…..
Over the years through poetry and effective communication Truth Is … has dedicated much of her time and all of herself to the betterment of community.
Truth Is … is a multiple time individual slam champion, a 9x national spoken word team member; participating in hundreds of slams. She has participated in several of the Tedx series and has graced the stage of the prestigious ‘When Sisters Speak’ spoken word concerts 5x. More recently she has opened up for legendary activist Angela Davis, been the recipient of the Min Sook Lee Labour Arts award and named Guelph’s Top 40 under 40. In addition to Slam and a long list of feature performances acrossCanada and the U.S., Truth Is … has headlined in several conferences focused on social equity, gender equality, youth motivation and the labour movement.
A great leader and powerful public speaker of our time has been noted for using thunderclap rhythm with a distinctive voice, blending ecstasy and despair. That has also been used as a description of her style. Her passion is only surpassed by her desire to explore and express the truth itself and this becomes obvious when her poetry is spoken.
She is a poet, a writer, a motivational speaker & an arts educator.
During the Winter Season (from September–March), the slam format consists of two rounds of 3-minute poems.
Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.
Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM at the door, it’s cash ONLY.
Get there early if you want a seat or want to slam. Before 7pm
