Between The Lines

Challenging Injustice through Spoken Word

Thanks to funding support from InSpirit Foundation we ran a spoken word writing workshop at the Broadway Youth Resource Centre in Vancouver in the spring of 2018, and then in the summer members of the DisPLACEment crew (and other creative change-makers) gathered on Galiano Island to write and record a series of video poems that celebrate the power of spoken word to amplify youth voice and create momentum for change.

Why Between The Lines?

We’ve created a series of workshops to accompany these video poems. These workshops are led by Indigenous, migrant and refugee youth. They encourage meaningful creative reflection on issues that impact young people, open up spaces to experience the power of spoken word creation and performance. They also delve into themes of Social justice, Indigenous identity and resilience, or Home and belonging.
