The first session of Word Arts LIVE! has ended June 2017 with it’s fifth meeting. It was an inspiring set of readings, presentations and discussions that allowed the local community to come together and grow as it welcomed some of its authors, poets, actors, artists and musicians.
The series is expected to resume later this year. Follow this blog for updates.

‘I’m very pleased to have completed phase one of Word Arts LIVE! – a collaboration with Surrey Muse At Large. Thank you to Surrey Cultural Grants for support. Held in the Media Room at Camp Alexandra in Crescent Beach. We hosted five monthly reading events from February through June 2017. A group of loyal fans developed starting with 12 and ending with 30 + who enjoyed the diversity and range of the very talented presenters. Authors, poets, performers. In the final session we expanded to a play reading excerpt, and an artist showing deconstructed books. The potential is endless.’
The venue was great.
Appreciation to the staff and volunteers at
Alexandra Neighbourhood House.
