“Join us for a celebratory reception for our current exhibition, “Weather Watching: Ocean Prayers and Provocations” by Erica Grim, in collaboration with Tracie Stewart and Sheinagh Anderson. The installation and experimental soundscape draws analogies between human bodies and the global oceanic body of water.
Featuring live poetry read by Renée Sarojini Saklikar, the City of Surrey’s Poet Laureate and interpretive dance performance by Dr. Celeste Snowber, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University.
We are privileged to share this exhibition on the shores of the Salish Sea, giving further emphasis to the artists’ message.
Light refreshments will be served. Cash bar available.”
Next Sunday, I’ll be co-hosting a short film premiere exploring the stories of Japanese Canadians in Surrey. Come join us at Surrey City Centre Library:

Tonight, Garry Gottfriedson and I will be reading at the Planet Earth Poetry series in Victoria. There will be an open mic session. Details below!
“The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. The evening begins at 7:30 with an open mic, followed by a featured reader(s). Planet Earth Poetry is located at Hillside Coffee and Tea, 1633 Hillside Ave (across from Bolen Books). Between 7 and 7:15, put your name in the hat to read at open mic.”
I’ll be performing a couple of sci-fi journey poems with the Mashed Poetics crew next Saturday on the Drive. Come on by and say hi! Here are the details:
“Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up. Poets are asked to write new work based on a song from the album we choose and we have a live band to play all the songs. Poets perform in between the tunes.
The next show is Saturday Jan 27th at Café Deux Soleils and we feature the late 80s classic Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty.”
