Description: Spoken Works (formerly SPEND poetry) surfaced from a recognition that there are very few ~regularly occurring and non-competitive~ spaces in this city for folks to share their poetry/music/art. We aim to promote experimentation and expression within a space that is intentionally organized to feel safer for the organizers and our communities. The event is organized within an anti-oppressive framework and will prioritize the voices of those who identify as queer, trans*, intersex, mixed, indigenous, and/or persyns of colour.
