In the guts of artists everywhere is a driving force, a question that begs for answer, churning engine of the inquisitive mind. Interrobang?! pays homage to those making their statements known, loud and clear, while asking the complicated, nuanced, and too often unasked-questions. Join us as this all star line-up of curious creators, including Billy-Ray Belcourt, Virago Nation, and Snotty Nose Rez Kids, fill the room with wonder and imagination – all the while offering us a bounty of new lenses, and a generous opportunity to look closer.
Funding for Billy-Ray Belcourt is provided by the League of Canadian Poets.

Café Deux Soleils has been the main venue for the Vancouver Poetry Slam since 1999. It is sold out every Monday by fans of spoken word poetry. It is an iconic venue run by a staff that are friendly and promote progressive values.
Café Deux Soleils is a semi-accessible venue to wheelchairs and scooters. They have recently completely renovated the bathrooms, installing three ungendered stalls. However there is no wheelchair-accessible bathroom. Please read the full report from the Radical Accessibility Mapping Project for more details.
