When & Where
RE:act Art & Community Together Collective
The RE:ACT Collective supports Calgary Poet Laureate, Kris Demeanor, and the Public Poetry Initiative by creating innovative events throughout the City of Calgary.
We support, and work with, youth literacy programs in our schools and communities.
We believe that as Calgary comes of age, its changing landscape is diverse, multicultural, and worth celebrating. There are many stories to tell.
Poetry and the arts belong to the people. We can help showcase the rich diversity of culture that exists in the City of Calgary by creating collaborative events that include music, literary arts, visual arts, and community outreach.
The countdown begins!!
One week till we celebrate... fundraising hijinx and revelry for a very good cause - as poetry builds bridges to literacy.
Some important tips:
- this is a PARTY - not a poetry reading - great music, free food, crazy good company, cheap drinks
- masks & zombie-esque attire not mandatory, come as you are, or come as your inner wild one
- CASH BAR (we do not have debit or credit equipment on site)
- Space is limited, so get your tickets soon!
- If you can't join us, you can still donate to our literacy initiative on this Eventbrite page!
