Tricksters and Transformers Event at MOA, Thursday, October 4, 2018

THURSDAY OCTOBER 4, 2018 | 6:30 – 9 PM
Join MOA for a special evening of literature, poetry and hip hop by Indigenous artists. Dive into a night with Eden Robinson, Christie Charles and Snotty Nose Rez Kids.
Catch this eclectic lineup of powerhouse First Nation artists here to wow with their written and spoken words.
Eden Robinson (Haisla, Heiltsuk) launches Trickster Drift, the much anticipated second novel of her captivating Trickster trilogy, with a Q&A and book signing. Be among the first to get an inside glimpse of the follow-up to her Scotiabank Giller Prize-nominated Son of Trickster.
The night is hosted by Christie Charles (Musqueam), Vancouver’s first Indigenous and current poet laureate. Christie will lay down her singular mix of urban Indigenous poetry, hip hop and storytelling. She’s joined on stage by the Polaris Prize-nominated hip hop duo, Snotty Nose Rez Kids (Haisla), for an earth-shaking set of  fiery rhymes that tell the stories of their culture and land—in their own words.
These are artist-activists for our times. This is a night for inspiration and instigation.
Doors: 6 pm
Program start: 6:30 pm
