Rabbit Richards was born in Brooklyn and incubated in cka Montreal, and refuses to choose between bagels. They are two different delicacies from two different cultural heritages and each have their merits. Richards has been performing poetry since 2012 and is a member of the Kalmunity Vibe Collective. They have relished winning at poetry slams such as the Underground Indies, but they find more meaningful their work with the Anti-Oppression Committee of the Board of Spoken Word Canada. They particularly enjoy touring across the continent continuing conversations they start on stages, and consider the cultivation of the community of poets in Canada to be a major focus of their work. They are currently serving as Accessibility Coordinator for Verses Festival of Words in cka Vancouver.
