Nation Building through Poetry: A Poet Laureate Cypher

February 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Representing Central, Eastern and Western parts of Canada, we have convened current and former Poet Laureates to discuss the impact of spoken word poetry as a method for nation building, marking major events and raising awareness about literary arts in general. We are delighted to welcome Edmonton’s current Poet Laureate, Titilope Sonuga, Ontario’s first Poet Laureate, Randell Adjei and former Halifax Poet Laureate, Rebecca Thomas to the table and we invite you to join us!

We are delighted to announce Angeline Tetteh Wayoe, Host of CBC Music’s The Block as our host for the evening.

This event is hosted in partnership with the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office, and The Multi-Faith Centre. 

Registration is required.
