We're back at the Drake with another high-energy poetry battle-concert, this time featuring Gabrielle from Toronto!

Hosted by Tanya Neumeyer.

Gabrielle is a proud, black spoken word artist from Jamaica. Although ever-growing, her work has so far been a depiction of her own life experiences, as well as the lives of those who inspire her - involving mental health, black power, heartbreak, and self-love. Recognized for her multi-layered poems, Gabrielle began performing original pieces as early as 2017 and has since continued to pursue her passion for poetry into performing for Afro-fest and becoming a 2018 Toronto Poetry Slam team member. Together the team has made history as the 2nd Canadian team ever to make it to semi-finals at the 2018 National Poetry Slam in Chicago, and earned the title of national champions in the 2018 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. She has, since then, established a solo career in performing for platforms like the 2019 Toronto Black Film Festival and When Sisters Speak 2019. Impressed yet? Well, she’s just getting started.

Hosted by Tanya Neumeyer.

Open mic available as always.
