The Canada SCORES Red Carpet Poetry Slam is moving online for a virtual format this year on February 25th. This event celebrates Canada SCORES poet-athletes’ successes while raising awareness and much-needed funds to allow the organization to continue to provide their free after-school programming.
Red Carpet Poetry Slam
When: Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Tickets: Available online now for $25
The Poetry Slam features original performances by select Poet-Athletes, chosen based on their performances at their recent Community Poetry Slams and their overall commitment to the Canada SCORES program.
The evening will also include an incredible online auction (to be launched closer to the event) and will be hosted by Jason Pires from CTV and Carl Valentine from the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Canada SCORES Vancouver partners with urban schools to provide a high quality, team-based after-school program that integrates soccer, poetry and service-learning.
Founded in Burnaby in 2013, Canada SCORES began offering their unique after-school programming at no cost to families in January 2014 with 45 students in 3 Burnaby elementary schools. Today, they have grown to support over 200 students, grades 4-7, through partnerships with 12 schools from Burnaby, Surrey, and New Westminster.
