Our theme in 2024 is Learning and Remembering Together.
All the artists curated for the 2024 festival are outstanding spoken word artists who are also committed to education and mentorship. More details are coming soon. Verses Festival of Words is Canada’s largest alternative literary festival bringing spoken word and page poets, storytellers, singer-songwriters and improvisers to Vancouver stages. In our tenth festival, we are celebrating words with a good heart and a good mind. Together, we will share poetry that guides us and allow us to rejoice in our creations. From Indigenous teachings to the anthems of our youth, change originates with the tradition of ceremony and the desire to speak about our lives.
2024 Verses Festival of Words will be taking place at the Vancouver Film School, WISE Hall, Performance Works, Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre, Community Taps and Pizza, and the Nest.
