Closing Showcase: Challenging the Current

CO*LAB 9641 102A Ave NW, Edmonton, AB, Canada

Challenging the Currents How can we resist today’s colonial currents – entrenched in our history, politics or day to day discourse – that rushes and rages on? Emily Riddle, Marilyn Dumont and Rita Bouvier share their powerful poetry that scrutinizes our painful past and problematic present while pointing a way forward.
