World Poetry Café

This community event seeks to promote the literary diversity of ethno-cultural groups and languages in Abbotsford. Funded by Citizenship & Immigration Canada, the purpose of hosting a World Poetry Cafe is to increase the community’s awareness of multicultural arts in the region. Participating poets, writers and performers will present in the language of their choice (may include their mother-tongue) and time will be allocated for audience response (if the performer wishes). 

We hope that university students will benefit from participating or attending on an academic, professional or personal level. If students/interns would like to incorporate this into a larger academic project, a letter of support can be incorporated.  This is a family-friendly, free community event.  Themes beyond ethnicity or language diversity could include other aspects of identity including immigration & citizenship, race, gender, sexuality, class, age, etc. 

When: March 24, 2016, 6:30-8:30pm

Where: Kariton Art Gallery  

How to participate: Fill out and submit the‌ World Poetry Cafe Participation Form to participate as a performer.          ‌
