Last Thursday of every month – 7:30 PM MT

WORDLAB is an all-ages digital-poetry open mic, brought to you by COLAB and Quarters Arts Society, with support from Commonground Arts Society, and in collaboration with spoken word poet Dwennimmen (aka Shima Robinson). Each month a new artist is featured, and emerging and seasoned spoken-word artists are invited into the virtual space to share their own work and stories.

Tickets for guests and to sign up as a participant are a suggested $10 to support the program. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds, and everyone is welcome to ‘pay-what-you-can’.

Meet Your Host, Dwennimmen

Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton – Treaty 6) born poet and spoken word artist Shima Robinson embodies, with every poem, the ancient meaning of her chosen pen name. Dwennimmen is the name of an ancient African Adinkra symbol, which means strength, humility, learning and wisdom. Read more on Dwennimmen’s website.
