We acknowledge this event is taking place on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
Mashed Poetics is a night of Spoken Word and Music mash up. Mashed Poetics has been a part of the Verses Festival of Words since its inception and we're happy to be a part of the 2018 edition.
This year we are featuring Couldn't Stand the Weather by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble.
We have 8 poets writing new work based on the songs from the album plus we have The Cold Shots playing all the songs. Poets will perform in between the tunes.
Here's our lineup for this year

As we do with all Vancouver Poetry House events we strive to put on trans friendly events. Please help us move towards that goal.
Accessibility Information for the Wise Hall:
You’ll note on arrival a set of railed stairs leading into the Hall. The wheelchair accessible entrance is around back. For certain events there will be someone posted at the door throughout the event and/or a bell system will be rigged up to ensure no one has to wait out there to be let in. If this has not been clarified by organizers already, please consider contacting them for details.
Once inside, you’ll find a spacious wood-floored hall, open concept, tables and chairs set up throughout. The stage (accessible only via stairs) is to your left, and the washrooms towards the back of the hall. The washrooms are currently gendered, but sometimes will be marked “gender neutral”. There are two sets of washrooms. The one to the left of the bar is currently marked “men” is on the same level and is now wheelchair accessible, with 2 urinals and one wheelchair access stall and one non-wheelchair access stall. The one to the right of the bar, currently marked “women”, is wheelchair accessible with no urinals and one additional stall. *update as of June

2013: please note that a new, wheelchair accessible men’s bathroom has been created. The finishing touches are still being added, and the door has been adjusted to more easily fit wheelchair/scooter users, but overall the space is great.
