Join us for a free walking tour of downtown art and poetry hosted by Poet Laureate Yvonne Blomer and Youth Poet Laureate Zoé Duhaime, with guest poets Wendy Morton, Garth Martens, Rhona McAdam and Daniel G. Scott. During the tour, poets will read an original poem they have written in response to a downtown art piece.

The 1.5-hour tour starts and ends at the Central Library (735 Broughton Street) and includes a stop at the Open Space Gallery (510 Fort Street, 2nd Floor), to view Spine, Anne J. Steves’ exhibition on the use of string figures.

The event is presented by the City of Victoria and the Greater Victoria Public Library.
