Vancouver poetry house presents feature poet, Chimwemwe Undi.

Chimwemwe Undi is a writer, performer and arts organizer. In 2015, she was an alumni ensemble member at the Victoria Spoken Word Festival, artist-in-residence at the Spur Festival and the featured poet at the Prairie Theatre Exchange’s Carol Shields Festival of New Work. She is the co-founder and director of Voices, Ink., the Winnipeg Youth Slam and coordinator for the Speaking Crow open mic series. Her work has appeared in Prairie Fire, CV2, Lemonhound and others. She has five too many teeth and knows all the words to most important power ballads.

As always, there will be an open mic and two-round poetry slam, (3 min) where poets accumulate points to qualify for the Van Slam team.

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.
