Art and culture have always been deeply entwined; they create a dynamic that has the capacity to trigger reflection, generate empathy, and create dialogue. On February 8th, Visible Poetics fosters a powerful and democratic way of expressing, sharing and shaping values that transforms the lives of individuals and communities, simply by bringing people together through writing and performance. Through expressing our collective understanding and knowledge through spoken word poetry, we aim to bridge the gap between a variety of cultures and races, using art as a catalyst for positive interaction and community participation. Join us for a rich evening of culture featuring live performances by some of the most renowned and influential spoken word poets from across the globe.


Featuring Komi Olaf M.ARCH: Over the past decade, Komi Olaf M.ARCH has become well known for his exploration of Afro-futuristic concepts within the disciplines of visual arts, Spoken word poetry, and Architectural Design. Working in painting, performance and virtual reality, the often Utopian themes expressed in his work have in common the artist’s fascination with hybridity and the general intersectionality of culture and race through a technological lens. After Completing his Master of Architecture degree at Carleton University, Olaf began a career as a Visual artist in pursuit of finding a balance between painting and poetry as a form of expression to promote social critique, healthy dialogue, and creative thinking. More artists TBA…
