In honour of Elimination of Racial Discrimination and World Poetry Day, we teamed up with Sudbury’s very own Myths and Mirrors to bring to you a Free Open Mic Night this past Monday, March 21st, 2022.
The night was filled with open and safe discussions on activating anti-racism within our workplaces, schools, and greater society. Take a look at the amazing artists, performers, and speakers who honoured us with their talents, stories, and experiences.
