About the Event

Welcome to our reading series and open mic!

We feature a headliner who does two 10-minute sets and we guarantee a spot to everyone who wishes to share their work with us. It's anything goes; we just ask that you be respectful of our various communities and be mindful of content/triggers. Hope to see you there!

Janice Jo Lee is a folk-soul singer-songwriter, spoken word poet, actor and playwright from Kitchener, on Haldimand Tract treaty territory. Lee is an award-winning performer known for being disarmingly hilarious and off-the-cuff. Lee’s work explores gender justice, antiracism, friendship, community, ancestry and the Earth. In Waterloo Region, Janice Jo Lee was voted Best Performance Artist five years running from 2016 to 2020. She was the City of Kitchener’s Artist in Residence in 2015 and created four cinepoems with the community called Folk Myths of Kitchener. She is the founding artistic director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Poetry Slam and created its first Spoken Word Residency program for emerging professionals. She is working on her upcoming albums Ancestor Song, Lonely is the Lullaby, and a new bouffon musical satire about the patriarchy.
