The New Embassy: The Brave and The Vulnerable

March 25 at 7pm

Sign up/in to register for this event

Inspired by Toronto’s renowned, historic Bohemian Embassy, meet a new generation of artists inspiring Canada’s ever-evolving literary scene at The New Embassy: a digital mini-series of spoken word, poetry, prose, theatrical readings, music and dance.

Curated by Jen Sookfong Lee, author and co-host of the literary podcast Can’t Lit, this collection of powerful readings offers up deeply open, vulnerable stories that challenge social boundaries. Hear Toronto-based actor, burlesque performer and playwright Dainty Smith read her short story “Prayer and Paradise”; Two Spirit writer and artist Aedan Corey read from their highly anticipated upcoming collection of poetry; and Nehithaw-Dené Métis poet Zoey Roy give an exciting spoken word performance.

This event will take place virtually. Please return to this page on March 25 at 7pm ET to watch the event. The video will be available to view for 72 hours.
