Host – Anjalica Solomon
Anjalica Solomon is a genderfluid Desi poet, spoken word artist, organizer and multi-disciplinary performer based in what is colonially known as Vancouver, BC on the stolen and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh and Musqueam Nations. Their poetic work often seeks to proclaim the possibilities of love and resilience. Anjalica is a poet of startling emotional intellect and candor whose work testifies to a deep faith in beauty, the power of nature, and ultimately, the human capacity to salvage integrity, radiance and joy from moments of struggle. Watch their poetry film productions “Honey Queen” and “Fruiticana On Fraser Street” which recently premiered and follow @Anjalicrush on Instagram to learn more about upcoming poetry, short films, theatre, new music and workshops.
