On July 18, Toronto witnessed the power of the growing movement of African Canadian performance poetry with top-ranking wordsmiths from RISE, Reckless Arts, Watah Theatre, Northern Griots Network , Spoke N’ Heard , BEOTIS Creative, Up From The Roots and more at the Black Artist Network Dialogue (BAND) new space in Parkdale. Curated by the brilliant Motion, the performers spoke their words amidst various sections of the photo-journalism exhibit: “Ears, Eyes, Voice: Black Canadian Photojournalists 1970s – 1990s.” It was followed by a fascinating panel discussion, and some tasty barbecue courtesy of Smoke Signals.
