A celebration of poetry and art, this DIY festival returns thanks to a partnership with Loft 112 and LimeLighter. Take in workshops, a poetry walk, and an evening filled with poetry, spoken word, live music, and film.

There’s even a free art opening that features creations from 10 artists who took a poem and ran with it to create works of art like no other. Throughout the evening, hear poets read their poems and artists share about their process. All the art is for sale so you can take your favourite home with you.

The People’s Poetry Festival takes place October 19 and 20, 2018 at Loft 112 (112, 535 8th Ave. SE). Head to for more details.
