Sign up/in to register for this event

Join Canadian award-winning poets and activists Kelisha Daley, Martin Gomes, Khiem Hoang, Shahaddah Jack and Zara Rahman for an empowering presentation of the power of performance. In conversation with Desiree Mckenzie, they’ll share the tools you’ll need to create your own poetry and writing, and the necessary techniques to reflect the challenges and change you’d like to inspire in the world around you.

All presenters are mentees of the iAM Programme: a youth-led arts and social justice mentorship for equity-seeking youth in Canada aged 12–26. Desiree Mckenzie is an award-winning performer and arts educator, who in 2019, earned the title of Canadian Festival of Spoken Word National Champion.

Recommended for ages 11 and up.

This event is presented in partnership with the Reading is Magic Festival.
