British Columbia

Grades: 7-12

The undisputed poet of our generation, Shane Koyczan, stunned both Canadian and international audiences with his spoken-word poetry at the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Since then his influential, thought-provoking and emotionally charged performances have moved audiences from across the globe. His rhythmic poems act like a mirror to the challenges of everyday teens. His honest and sometimes tender words become a reflection of the harsh realities of bullying, body image and friendship. A great way to acknowledge The Ministry’s Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week – November 20-24, 2017.
