“Oceans to Sail” Showcase Featuring Saul Williams and Guests
Saul Williams is no stranger to conversations that permeate the collective minds of the diaspora. Reparations are within reach and he has a list of demands waiting to unravel from the tip of his revolutionary tongue. Bolstered by the work of local activists and artists Kimmortal, Eugene Bae, Khari Wendell McClelland and Dawn Pemberton, Williams takes to the stage to gather workers for the resistance that is at our doorsteps.
“come, my love
we have oceans to sail”
— Saul Williams, Said the Shotgun to the Head

Accessibility Info for 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 bar, currently marked “women”, is wheelchair accessible with no urinals and one additional stall. The one to the left of the bar is currently marked “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.
