PIP PIP Hooray!

Let’s flashback to an amazing summer…

We did it! Poetry in the Park 2022 was a great success.

Poetry in the Park celebrated its 11th Anniversary! We were pleased to bring it back to the band shell at Queen’s Park this year.

Thanks to everyone who continued to support us by coming out to read and to listen— and to all the new faces who came out this year! It was a huge success with a record number of attendees.

Thank you to the City of New Westminster and the Arts Council of New Westminster for our 2022 funding.

It was lovely summer showcasing nine wonderful weeks of PIP. We featured 18 poets this year, with a stellar line up of Open Mic readers each week. A big shout out to our amazing hosts.

We received incredible feedback and response and look forward to 2023…Looking forward to it again next year.

Best, Janet Kvammen RCLAS President
