For Capital Slam's second show of the new year, we are pleased to welcome Philosi-fire as our feature poet:
Roua aka Philosi-fire is a poet who writes about home, identity, and her personal experiences including poems about anti-blackness, islamaphobia, and domestic violence. During the day she’s an engineering student at Carleton and when she’s not where she’s supposed to be she’s likely to be found in a coffee shop. She hopes her work will help others to cope, heal, and find connections.
The poetry slam will consist of two rounds of three minute poems, in addition to an open mic. (Come early to sign up!)
Doors open at 5:00pm
Show starts at 5:30pm
Entrance is $8 at the door
FREE for performers
This is a DRY, ALL AGES event, everyone is welcome!
Thanks to the City of Ottawa for making this possible.
