Event: Spoken Word Festival

Where: Celtic Cellar, Festival Hall and Hotel Arts, Calgary, Alberta
When: April 22 – 25

The Annual Calgary Spoken Word Festival combines poetry presentations and a workshop to address issues in current poetic language topics. This year (2017) the festival begins at Hotel Arts with a workshop on metaphor, imagery and poetry. Then continues with poetry readings and slams at Festival Hall and Celtic Cellar. Anyone can share his or her ideas. Bells, chimes and gongs will punctuate the slams and readings. The festival is educational in nature. Its intention is to stimulate discussion and create an open forum of educational space in the community. The theme for 2017 is “Words and Music”.
