CARNEGIE’s 3rd Poetry Slam!
Saturday November 7, 1pm – 2:30pm
Carnegie Theatre, 401 Main
Free

In celebration of the Carnegie newsletter and its long history of encouraging writers and poets in the Downtown Eastside, we present Carnegie’s 3rd Poetry Slam! Have you slammed a poem before? You’ll have three minutes to say your poem. Memorize it, improvise it, rant or sing it out. Five random audience members chosen to judge will then give you a score; be prepared for surprises. Featured host and MC is Jillian Christmas, a Grand Slam Poetry Champion. Be part of the audience – laugh, cheer, cry, clap – or step up and slam it, you know you want to!

 

This event was on  Day 11 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!

AHA MEDIA for Heart of the City Festival 2014

The Festival is thrilled to partner with the DTES’s AHA Media to provide social media coverage (video/photos/blog) of the Heart of the City Festival. AHA Media gives voice to our local community and provides services for individuals and organizations to share their news and special events on a broader scale through social media. Founded in 2008 by local artists April Smith, Hendrik Beune, and Al Tkatch, AHA Media previously collaborated with Fearless City Media and has an ongoing working relationship with W2Community Media Arts and various other organizations and individuals in the DTES community. The members of AHA Media describe themselves as “definitely not mainstream media”. Based in Vancouver’s DTES, their style is described as non-invasive and unassuming.
