  • Last month, we had to reschedule due to the storm. But RISE Thursdays is finally back. 
From our weekly open-mic showcases in Scarborough to our monthly curated showcases in the Annex, please join us in our cornerstone to Reaching Intelligent Souls Everywhere (RISE). Similar to our RISE Poetry Mondays, RISE Thursdays is an open mic event that will take place on the first Thursday of every month in partnership with A Different Booklist. Our mission is to create a safe and welcoming platform for self-expression and healing through the performance arts.

Our First RISE Thursday feature of 2019: AISHA THE POET

Aisha Farah is a 27 year old, born and raised in Toronto. She is of Kenyan descent and is currently studying Child and Youth Work. She began writing poetry at the age of 16 and started performing at 18. Aisha is a part-time spoken word poet who writes and shares experiences  relating to daily life struggles, islamophobia, race/discrimination, and misconceptions. She hopes to use her voice through spoken word poetry to shed light on topics of importance.
