BANFF CENTRE SPOKEN WORD PROGRAM
APRIL 17-29 2017 Banff Canada
The 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 WakefieldSheri-D Wilson (program founder) and Tanya Tagaq. All of it breathtaking. Next program in 2019. Give thanks. Photo above: Luke Wren Reid
