• Video of the Poetry Walkabout from THIN AIR 2016

    Greetings, all! Since the weather seems to have lightened up here in Winnipeg (at least for today) it’s only natural that our thoughts have turned to one of our successful new events from last year’s festival – the Poetry Walkabout. Starting at the Strong Badger Coffeehouse, poet Kevin Spenst led an audience on a performance-focused tour around the neighborhood. Kevin popped into a few businesses in the area and spoke to people on the street and shared poems with them in a spontaneous and fun afternoon. Check out the first of three parts to the video below and check out the EVENT PAGE here to watch the rest.

    Happy Friday!!
