She, the Rock is a braided poetic event followed by a panel discussion, showcasing the voices of Rayanne Haines, Dwennimmen, Emily Riddle and Dawn Carter, four of Edmonton’s celebrated poets and storytellers.

Hosted by acclaimed author, Jacqueline Baker, She, the Rock is the highly anticipated follow up to She, the River, a 2020 film featuring eight powerhouse Edmonton poets of varying ages and cultural backgrounds. She, the Rock, explores the poets’ upbringing, truths, and family journeys. Together, they share with us the embodiment of their personal stories as they intertwine in this city. By interweaving their journeys together in story on the stage, they invite you to embrace and celebrate the collection of their diverse histories and present realities.
