Global Justice Poetry Slam

Happy International Development Week everyone. There’s some events happening later this week that I’ll cover on Wednesday, but tonight there’s a slam happening at Creative City Centre (1843 Hamilton St.).

It’s being presented in collaboration with the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation. And the theme for the night, as the event title indicates, is “global justice”. So slammers are requested to present work tied broadly to that theme.

The feature poet is Somali-born, Edmonton-based poet and performer Ahmed “Knowmadic” .¬†Doors are at 7 p.m., and admission to the all-ages event is free.
