Miranda Krogstad Spoken word poet meets eternal optimist, Miranda’s poetry ranges in topic from childs-play to empowerment, giving life’s obstacles a feel-good finish. A member of the 2014 slam team, a member of the 2013 international spoken word program at the Banff Centre, and a Canada Council for the Arts grant recipient, she has since co-founded the spoken word network YYSpeak to create a communal and supportive space for spoken word artists. A big supporter of the local arts, Miranda is no stranger to Calgary’s spoken word events, featuring at staples such as Expressions, Say Word, Can You Hear Me Now, and Raw Voices. By day, Krogstad presents workshops on creativity and empowerment at schools, charitable organizations and events such as the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Immigrant Youth, the University of Calgarys Mental Health Symposium, Sister to Sister, and more. Her mission is to spread positivity and confidence through the art of poetry and encourage others to share their voice. For more information about this event and updates, visit facebook.com.
