SUPPORT AND CELEBRATE A NEW GENERATION OF SPOKEN WORD ARTISTS
Reverb Jane-Finch is a spoken word poetry event taking place on March 12th, 6:00 -8:00 pm at York Woods Library and features up and coming poets from Jane-Finch, Regent Park and Malvern. Organized by the Art Gallery of York University in partnership with with Success Beyond Limits, The Malvern Spot and COBA (Collective of Black Artists), Reverb Jane- Finch is the second of three events that showcases the artistic development and growth of emerging performance poets, a number of whom take part in the AGYU’s weekly Reverb: Rhythms of Poetry program. Led by a team of lead artists including Britta Badour, David Delisca and Jordon Veira, Reverb has engaged emerging spoken word artists from Jane-Finch, Regent Park and Malvern in cultivating an ongoing writing and performance practice. We have also assembled a team of junior artists who collaborate with our lead artists, co-facilitating weekly workshops and teaching youth about the art and performance of spoken word poetry. Our team of junior artists include: Nadia Adow, Zeinab Aidid, Jacob Agustin, Berma, Destiny Henry, Moose and Suviana.
Admission is free. For information please contact Allyson Adley, 416.736.2100 ext. 88608 / firstname.lastname@example.org
