11th biennial Banff Centre Spoken Word residency gathered
20 artists from UK, US, Australia and Canada for 2 weeks in the Rocky
Mountains to strengthen writing and performance. Treaty 7
Territory took us in and let us walk along her backbone. We listened.
Explored. Literature, breath, memory and risk. I lost my voice from
sheer joy. Faculty included myself Tanya Evanson (program director), Janet Rogers, Dr. Afua Cooper, Buddy Wakefield, Sheri-D Wilson (program founder) and Tanya Tagaq. All of it breathtaking. Next program in 2019. Give thanks. Photo above: Luke Wren Reid
