Spoken Word Project

Alliance Française du Manitoba's SPOKEN WORD PROJECT series is a regular event offering an open mic to all: francophones, anglophones, franglophones, whatever floats your boat! Come share your words in French and/or English and/or any language you wish to use, and help us build a strong community of poets. Bring your voice and your instruments, we'll be there to listen.

About Projet Spoken Word Project

The Project was launched during the 2015-2016 season by the Alliance Française du Manitoba and was led by Léonore Bailhache and Rob Malo, with the goal of supporting slam and poetry creation in Winnipeg, no matter what language poets wish to use! The evenings were hosted by Rob Malo.

For the second season, in 2016-2017, Amber O’Reilly took on the role of host! The last event of the season, the 2016-2017 Projet Spoken Word Project Dernière was organized in collaboration with the Centre culturel franco-manitobain and Éditions du Blé. Author Lise Gaboury-Diallo was the ambassador of the event and launched her new book Empreintes, a collection of poems, and read a few of her texts.
