“LEGACIES OF THE KOMAGATA MARU”
An Evening of Poetry of Resistance
Spoken Word & Performances
Performances by participants of Brown Canada’s Creative Workshops
Join the members of our “Legacies of the Komagata Maru Letters To Our Elders” workshop series as we perform poetry, spoken word and other performances inspired by June Jordan’s “Poem about My Rights” as well as by the workshop content, and from sharing of personal stories and ideas as a group.
The workshop series was open to all those who self-identified as youth of colour, Indigenous, and mixed-race. The Workshops were dedicated to exploring different themes and legacies that result from the Komagata Maru historical incident as well as dedicated to give participants opportunity to build their storytelling skills in a variety of artistic mediums.
