If “the poem does not start until you start to tell the truth,” then a poet’s work is to be relentless in the search for that truth. Globe-trotting poet Titilope Sonuga has you dig into the bone, creating poems from a deeply personal place, while striking a balance between maintaining the integrity of your truth and respecting your audience.
Doors 12:30 PM / Start 1:00 PM / WISE Hall / $18 Adv / $20 Door / Limited Space!
Accessibility information for the WISE Hall
You’ll note on arrival a set of 10 railed stairs leading into the Hall. The wheelchair accessible entrance is around back. For this event there will be someone posted at the back door throughout the event.
Once inside, you’ll find a spacious wood-floored hall, open concept, tables and chairs set up throughout. The stage (accessible only via stairs) is to your left, and the washrooms towards the back of the hall. The washrooms are currently gendered, but will be marked “gender neutral” for Verses. There are two sets of washrooms. The one to the right of the car, currently mark “women” is wheelchair accessible with no urinals and one additional stall. The one to the left of the bar, currently mark “men”, is on the same level and is now wheelchair accessible, with 2 urinals and one wheelchair access stall and one non-wheelchair access stall. The door has been adjusted to more easily fit wheelchair/scooter users. Overall the space is great.

This event is a scent-reduced space. To assist us in our goal of increased access, please be aware of our attempt to reduce the impact of personal scented products (perfumes, scented oils, etc) in our festival spaces.
