Mi'qmak spoken word poet Rebecca Thomas, Halifax Poet Laureate 2016-2018; C.R. Avery, multi-skilled raconteur/musician and one of Canada's most distinctive and decorated performers; and Wes Ryan, Queer/differently-abled spoken word artist and dancer, opened the 15th annual Words Aloud Festival in 2018

Words Aloud's overall vision is to stimulate empathy, creativity and interconnection between and among the region's various communities and age groups by developing our audiences' writing, performing, and listening skills in the idioms of spoken word verse and storytelling.
