“Only by multiplying our circles of care will we achieve the infrastructures necessary to build a caring society.”

(The Care Collective, 2020)

From the Hearth, is a six-part poetry and spoken word workshop series, that expands our circles of care to embrace the journeys, stories and connections we share as humans. We guide both new and experienced poets through the art of storytelling and finding an individual voice that celebrates collective memory and belonging. We discuss why our stories are important, do exercises in expression and inspiration and think about community and collaboration. This series is facilitated by Billie the Kid who is a K’ai Taile Dené and Nehiyaw spoken word poet and storyteller. 

The series covers themes such as 1. Why our stories are important, 2. What is a story?,  3. The Poet’s Toolkit, 4. The responsibility of the Storyteller, 5. Home and Inspiration and culminates with 6. Community and Collaboration.

All are welcome and no experience is required. Participants can register for individual workshops, or join the full series.
