Hogan’s Alley Poetry Festival is a celebration of diverse communities in Vancouver through literary performance, spoken word and storytelling. The Black Dot Roots and Culture Collective with the support of the National Congress of Black Women are collaborating to pay tribute to the heritage and creative contributions of Vancouver’s East End community as a part of the city’s year-long 125th Anniversary activities. The program of the Hogan’s Alley Poetry Festival will highlight the cultural impact of the neighbourhood. Events will showcase poetry and other forms of artistic expression as well as facilitate space for dialogue and civic engagement.
