Come join us for another night of slam poetry! As always, our event is in our hybrid live & online format. Bring yourselves and your words to Community Pizza, 1191 Commercial Dr, or to the Van Slam zoom space.

This event will include an open mic as well as a feature set from poet Navi Dha!

Loud and proud trans woman, Navi Dha, is a Canadian poet who addresses themes of gender identity, sexuality, heartbreak, grief, trauma, and the healing powers of chosen family in her works. Navi has a passion for spoken word. Her pieces are a beautiful mix of slam poetry and storytelling.

Outside of her artistic expression, Navi has a bachelor’s in psychiatric nursing and works in  downtown Vancouver’s mental health outpatient services. She is also a certified geek seven days a week, book smeller, anime junkie, gamer extraordinaire, amateur archer, and full time sailor scout.

Follow her on instagram to stay updated on an exciting journey through poetry and spoken word as she will be having an upcoming book in 2024 and is pursuing other live events such as Sofar Sounds and Vancouver Story Slam’s 2023 Finals Championship this December~ @nav.dhaa

Tickets are available online, or at the door!

Sign up to read starts at 7:30 both in person and online. See you there!
