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.
A bit about our feature artist: Janice Jo Lee (she/they) is a contemporary folk musician, spoken word poet, bouffon-clown, activist, and educator living in Toronto, Ontario. She performs with her guitar, trumpet and loop pedal. She is a queer, 2nd generation settler of Korean descent. Lee’s artwork explores gender empowerment, workers rights, antiracism, climate change, and community. This year she releases her long anticipated song cycle album titled Ancestor Song. Lee is the founding artistic director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Poetry Slam and has featured at slams across Canada.
Sign up to read starts at 7:30 both in person and online. See you there!
Masking Policy: Masks are encouraged, but the venue is a restaurant and members of the audience will be maskless.
