Event Time: 12pm to 2pm

Event Location: 240 Waterloo St. London

Join us the Saturday after our slam from 12-2pm for a workshop opportunity to chat with poets, learn some tips and tricks, have your writing critiqued, practice performing, or just sit in and listen! Workshops are held at the GORGEOUS London Roundhouse, and are FREE + ALL welcome! (no experience necessary)

Our August workshop will be facilitated by our August features!

This participatory spoken wordshop will center two-spirit experiences and provide a brief introduction to ongoing forms of colonialism, assimilation, and dispossession. We will explore truth-telling, embodiment, rhythm and song, from Anishinaabek perspectives, as strategies for decolonization and as a basis for understanding inherent rights and responsibilities. Lastly, how Anishinaabe ways of knowing and living can inform spoken word will be discussed in relation to individuals’ and collectives’ own creative processes.
