Join us for our first ever Indigenous Poetry Open Mic Night!

We hope you'll join us with your stories as we serve up an evening of poetry.

One that casts a critical eye on Indigenous-Settler relations, explores the truth of our common experiences, uproots the source of our community's struggles, celebrates our connections to the land, as well as finds healing in the medicine of laughter and connection.

Let's use our stories to fight colonization, build community, nurture resilience, and assert the power in our voices!

Indigenous writers of all styles, levels and ages are welcome.

***Suggested Donation $5-$10

***This event is intended to be mostly for Indigenous people. However, meaningfully contributing allies are welcome and no one will be turned away***

******UPDATE ******
A larger solo event is being planned in support of Unist'ot'en however all proceeds will still go toward their camp.
