Verses Festival 2018 Expresses Our Gratitude …

Before it gets too far in the past, we want to express our immense gratitude to all the poets, storytellers, musicians, and volunteers who made #VSFestival18 the beautiful thing that it was. And thank you also to all the various venues’ staff, and the people who came out to the shows, and judged, and clapped, and snapped, and told us how much you loved what was offered up.

We could not have created Verses Festival of Words this year without the support of Canada Council for the Arts, the BC Arts Council, BC Gaming, City of Vancouver Cultural Project Grants, Civic Theatres of Vancouver, City of Vancouver Cultural Services, the Canada Arts Presentation Fund, and Canadian League of Poets. Thank you!
We would also like to thank the Community Arts Council of Vancouver for co-sponsoring the Reframing Relations workshop.
Big thanks as ever to all the local venues and businesses who provide space and services free or at a discount to us, and in-kind goods to be used as thank you gifts for artists and prizes for audiences. You make the festival so much richer in texture. Logos and click-throughs to websites can be found at the bottom of the VPH homepage here.

Next year, we do it all again with another brilliant line-up to bring together. In 2019, we will gather a little later in the year, from April 25 – May 5. Save those dates for #VsFestival19!
