Every year we like to set aside one poetry slam where we invite poets to break the poetry slam rules to see what sort of creative mischief they can come up with.
Poets are encouraged to use props and costumes or to perform group pieces and cover poems to use the cafe space in wild and imaginative ways.
It’s our annual “almost anything goes anarchy slam” for poets 13-20 years of age.
We’ll also be featuring the return of Britta B. Britta was our 2013 Youth Slam Finals Feature and is FINALLY back!
“Britta B. is a spoken word poet and arts educator. Originally from Kingston, ON, she now resides in Toronto’s Regent Park. Britta has performed on stages across North America and continues to collaborate with community organizations like UNITY Charity, RISE Edutainment, Leave Out Violence Ontario (LOVE) and The Stephen Lewis Foundation. When she’s not writing or educating, Britta is emceeing breakdance battles, acting in community theatre plays and travelling abroad”
We acknowlege this event is taking place on unceded Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh territories.
We strive to be a trans friendly event. Please help in moving towards that goal.
Be kind to our volunteers. It’s cash only at the door and sometimes we fill the venue to capacity and folks have to wait in line. Please be patient if that happens to you.
$4 for 18 and under. $6-$10 for 19 and older.
