Following its first edition in 2018, Ottawa Poet Laureate Andrée Lacelle’s project Poèmes de la Cité 2019 – nos lieux, nos pas continues its celebration of Ottawa with the words and images of 11 poets and 10 visual artists (several of them also poets in their own right) who are either from Ottawa or have strong ties to the city. The works created for the second edition of the project will be launched with an exhibition and readings on March 23rd, 3pm, at City Hall, as part of a broader VERSeFest 2019 launch event which will take place at City Hall throughout that day, culminating with the announcement of the two new Poet Laureates that evening.
