Lakehead Orillia’s Black Liberation Collective (BLC) is excited to present a poetry night dedicated to students on our campus who want to be heard. Our poetry night gives students a voice to express whatever issues they’re facing personally or on campus. People want to be heard, people love celebrating others being heard. Therefore, we want to create a space with good vibes and showcases talent, creative pieces, art with depth and story for us to relate, connect, unite and have a good time.
