"ITS HEREEEEE!!!! I am extremely excited to announce that as the new Artistic Associate for Workshop West Playwrights' Theatre, I will be curating the first ever ALL BLACK arts festival in Edmonton, AB! This project is very near and dear to my heart for obvious reasons and I couldn't be more honoured to help create space for fellow Black artists!!! PLEASE SHARE!

ALSO, the incredible Brandon Wint will be working with 10 young Black poets/writers leading up to the festival.
