What comfort lays concealed beneath our collective silence? Each year we unite and celebrate the dynamic voices of women of all cultures and ages. The precise images of Jill Battson, the poetic justice of Jen Kunlire, Kinnie Starr’s electrifying beats, the compelling force of Jeanette Lynes’ lush poetics, the suspended surreal vignettes of Hilary Peach and the original tales of Orunamamu. The Calgary International Spoken Word Festival & Sexual Health Access Alberta invite you to contribute to this tradition and revive its meaning in our lives. We’ll intersperse the spoken words with stories you’d like to share. Come early to make your contribution. To make your morning even better, enjoy coffee and delicious nibbles from Caffé Beano!
