Date and time


CBC Plaza

Vancouver, BC



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible, has gender-neutral washrooms, and will have a sign language interpreter.


Don't miss Julia's live poetry performance as she gives voice to themes including self-worth, truth, relationships, family, home, and (more often than intended) food.

Bridging the gap through poetry, Julia touches the pulse of the room with her unabashed honesty, powerful stage presence, and knack for weaving real and relatable stories of the everyday into verse. Come for the personal words and stay for the universal connection.

The show starts at 2:00 pm.
