It’s almost time for our June show (I hope you have your pieces ready for the open mic).
I am pleased to announce that, one week from today (meaning next Wednesday, June 13th), we will be featuring the spoken word stylings of one Lishai who is coming to us from Toronto.
You’ll also get to meet our in-coming host, VoV alumna Nadine Thornhill who will be cohosting the June and July shows with Faye Estrella.
A little about Lishai:
Lishai has competed in poetry slams at a national and international level, including representing Toronto at the Women of the World Poetry Slam, The Vancouver International Poetry Festival and the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.
She is a committee lead for the Caucus on Gender Issues with Spoken Word Canada and also organized Canada’s first Underground Individual Slam Championship.
She believes in art as a tool for community development and uses her words to create dialogue around issues of identity and belonging.
You can check out her poetry blog here.
See you next Wednesday!
