We're finally back at the Drake Hotel! Help us celebrate our grand return by checking out a spoken word competition featuring some of the best poets in the GTA!
Featuring Ayla! Ayla Lefkowitz is a Toronto-based poet, educator and social entrepreneur. Her work is unapologetic and honest, with vulnerability as one of its greatest strengths. Ayla is a 2017 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word champion and published author of her first poetry anthology titled Armour. Outside of performing, Ayla is Co-founder and Co-Executive Director of CANVAS Arts Action Programs, a non-profit organization that educates on gender equity, consent and LGBTQ2S+ inclusion.
