Capital Slam Season Opener
September 26, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm$8
I will be launching my first poetry video and opening for the new Capital Slam season as they start a fresh chapter in their new venue, Cafe Nostalgica, on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory. The venue is fully accessible and offers a full range of food and beverages.
Though it’s $8 at the door, the show is free for performers.
Thank you to the City of Ottawa for funding Capital Slam, to the Ontario Arts Council for support for my video, to the various communities that have supported me and taught me so much so that I am at this point in my life and career, such as the diasporic Pilipinx communities, indigenous Turtle Island communities, indigenous Filipino community, and African-American/Black communities.
Proceeds of the event will partially go to Black Lives Matter Ottawa and building indigenous schools in Mindanao, Philippines.
