**Unfortunately our venue for GPS is not wheelchair accesible.**
All Guelph Spoken Word events are promoted as consent positive spaces; we ask that all persons receive explicit consent before physically engaging another. Same goes for deep conversations and advice/feedback.
Language and content of GSW events can sometimes be intense and triggering, while GPS is an all ages event and we do most often have an active listener on hand, attendees discretion is advised.
About the feature
Since first emerging onto the Vancouver Poetry Slam stage, MacRae has carved out a reputation as an innovative writer and performer, a passionate arts educator, and a dedicated community organizer. He’s been a regional and national level slam champion, in addition to which he was the 2013 Victoria Spoken Word Festival Poet of Honour.
In the slam community, MacRae has been a three-time regional champion (2010, Vancouver team champion; 2013/2016 Vancouver individual champion), as well as having won the inaugural Canadian Festival of Spoken Word underground indies title in 2011. All told, he has represented Vancouver at national poetry slam tournaments four times, and Victoria once.
Whether performing, teaching, or organizing, MacRae continues to prove that he is one of the most versatile, innovative, and dedicated spoken word artists in the country.
