The Walking Cities Panel at IFOA 2017

Walking Cities is a literary program connecting writers from Canada and the UK in 4 cities—Toronto, Winnipeg, Montréal and Vancouver—to exchange ideas related to identities, places and territories. The project is present by the British Council Canada and you can watch the short films here.

In partnership with the British Council Canada, IFOA 2017 hosted a panel featuring authors for the Toronto location, Dionne Brand (Canada) and Vahni Capildeo (UK), as they discussed how various places have influenced their own writing and thinking.
