Lillian Allen

A Revolutionary Tea Party with Poet and Spoken Word Artist Lillian Allen

In collaboration with Trinity Centre and host Dr. Edson Burton, we invite you to join us for an evening celebrating the transformative power of word and sound with Lillian Allen, award-winning Poet and Creative Writing Professor at the Ontario College of Art & Design University in Toronto.

Open mic starts at 7pm, followed by performance and Q&A with Lillian Allen.

Professor Allen has pioneered and specialized in dub poetry, a new genre of English Literature which is a highly politicized form of poetry preferring a black aesthetic and specific cultural codification. Allen is responsible for opening up the form to insist and engrave feminist content and sensibilities. Professor Allen’s work in poetry, theatre, fiction, non-fiction, writing for children, and experimental writing forms has been extensively published, performed, and recorded.
