Prepare for an intriguing interplay of words, images, and voices in our all-poetry evening.

Winnipeg’s inaugural Poet Laureate, Di Brandt, invokes the ecstatic tradition of poetry in her new collection celebrating the divine feminine.

David James Brock’s poems draw from sci-fi and poli-sci, prog rock and politics, climate fiction and ancient mythology, as they revel in strange, protean imagery to explore the swamps between our natural and technological worlds.

Mikko Harvey’s poems are surreal, absurd, delightful, surprising—like fractured fairy tales straddling the fine line between menace and wonder.

Basma Kavanagh’s new collection of poems draws together her Lebanese heritage, her respect for matrilineal histories, and her concern for the environment.

Arleen Paré explores the shared lives of accomplished sculptors Florence Wyle and Frances Loring, once well-known but now faded from common memory.

Renée Sarojini Saklikar’s work is powered by the richness of collaboration—between disciplines, communities, and species.

Featuring an improvised performance by Caity Curtis and Stephen Sim.
