A conversation between two men defining beauty.

But who can define the word

Her demeanour was everything.

I analyzed her bathing suit with every sultry step she took.

The way it clung to her body in a brilliantly modest way


The men speaking of beauty caught her golden strut and froze

She walked past in what seemed like slow motion

They thawed.

Tawhida Tanya Evanson: When Words Can Really Give You Wings



As I’m writing these words, I would like my readers to know how much words are powerful but I’ve found another beautiful soul to express it better than I could: Tawhida Tanya Evanson.

For Tawhida, words are more than a cordial email you send out to your employer; it’s a way of life. She wears many hats, whether it’s doing spoken word, slam or more recently being an author.

She embodies this idea that words can actually move and impact the world. Today we wanted to know her journey as she’s becoming a worldwide phenomenon in front of our very eyes.


In this interview we get to dive into her inspiration, how she become involved with the art form and more. Enjoy!

1-Did you find spoken word or did spoken word find you?

Spoken word found me in 1996 at ISART Gallery in Old Montreal for an event called QUE ES DIVA?. I was invited as a feature among several multidisciplinary performers that night. One of the poems I read was called Stuck in the Anus of Time and it received a standing ovation. I was twenty three years old, my parents were in the audience, and I was hooked. 

2- What’s your creative process when you write?


I used to write longhand in a journal whenever the muse came for a visit. Then every few months I’d sift through the text to see if anything could be crafted into a poem. Now I write directly on the computer by using a specific album to condition myself into sitting down and writing for long stretches. Every project has a soundtrack. It is through music, that I Pavlov-myself intro writing. But I do like to edit on paper, outside in Nature.

3–Is it more difficult to perform your art in front of a public than to put it in a book format. 

The work tells me how it wants to live. I try to get out of the way.

4-If you had to pick one medium, whether it’s being an author, in studio or a performer. Which one would it be and why?


I operate in the continuum of the griot. Also known as jali or jeli in Manding, griot is a French word that refers to the West African keepers of oral history. A griot’s job description is storyteller, poet, genealogist, historian, adviser, spokesperson, diplomat, mediator, interpreter, translator, musician, composer, teacher, entertainer, exhorter, warrior, witness, praise-singer and ceremony participant. A single label doesn’t work here. 

5-You are involved in every aspect of your art form, whether in the administration side through your role at Banff Centre Spoken Word program or as an artist and author. Is it easy to navigate between the 2 worlds? 

The corpus callosum connects the left and right side of the brain and I like to walk that bridge. An arts practice requires focused creativity, and for those without management or agents, it also takes administrative skills. As Mother Tongue Media, I’ve been producing live arts events since 1996 and so there’s been time to polish up the organizing skills. Like anything, it took practice. And since becoming a full-time artist in 2012, I’ve been able to find middle ground between arts creation and administration.

6-Your new book ‘’Book Of Wings’’ got you through a difficult breakup. Do you think artists can heal through their art and if so what was that process for you?


For the writer, a blank page can be a mirror or simply a blank page for the imagination to go wild. Either way, all human beings are creative and artistic regardless of whether or not they call themselves artists. I believe art-making is simply good for mental health. I like to write down my inner world in order to try and see it clearly from various angles. I then mythologize it to bring a circularity to the ruins. There is always a lesson to be learned from inner archeological digs.

7-You just received the price  ‘’Prix Nouvel Apport 2022’’ for your work, how did you react when you first got the news?

I had requested from the universe that this novel receive a prize, so the news was a thankful surprise. I have been given the uncanny ability to ask for things that then materialize. I can ask for what I need, but never what I want, and never on behalf of another. Details are useless. It’s a strange state of affairs, but magical nonetheless.

8-What do you want your legacy to be as an artist?


If you’ve received Beauty, then I’ve done my job.

9-What’s next for you? 

I wrote, performed and produced an Afrofuturist live concert film called Cyano Sun Suite with musicians from Montreal’s Kalmunity Vibe Collective that will premiere in spring 2023. It uses levels of scientific organization as metaphors to explore a changing planet and my own aging black body. I am also currently translating my novel Book of Wings into French for Marchand de Feuille. It’s a luscious life – give thanks.

Montreal Mural Arts Festival : Everything you need to know



Everything you need to know about the Montreal Mural Arts Festival is here !

This is the 7th edition of the festival.

It all started from the dream of 4 men who loved traveling around the world to attend the planet’s best festivals. Alexis Froissart, Andre Bathalon, Yan Cordeau and Nicolas Munn Rico (founders of the Mural festival) noticed there was a gap in the market.


”We didn’t have this kind of festival in Montreal so we wanted to bring it back to our hometown.” says Alexis.
”It started as a 3 day festival and we quickly grew it to 11 days this year.” He added.
It quickly grew from a simple Festival showcasing the talents of local Graph & Painting artists to an overall celebration, showcasing local shops, restaurants, designers, dancers, musicians of the underground Montreal community.
Mural Festival happens every year during the F1 (Formula 1) festivities in Montreal, the busiest weekend of the year.

Street food, local merchants & Handmade crafts are roaming each side of the temporary pedestrian street

I attended Art Jam’s 10th edition on March the second. Each edition varies in what artists and performances will be presented to you. The cover for Art Jam is $7 after 9:00pm ( if you arrive before, it is free).

You might be wondering what exactly is Art Jam? It is a creative event where innovative minds can meet and express themselves through different forms of art. You may think “ I’m not creative enough for this”. Well, Art Jam is for everyone. Even if you are not participating, you will be immersed in art all around you. The art at the 10th edition came in all forms including painting, drawing and live tattooing.

The music further helps enhance the experience for you at Art Jam.

The environment itself was very easy-going and open. The five artists I paid the most attention to were : Mephisto Bates who painted a beautiful collage ; Charles Boulay’s wall of graffiti ; Vanessa Malo’s floor art and South Shore Zzombie’s (Anastasia Fadous) painting. And last, but not least, Loose Your Bananas art installation.

I also got the opportunity to actively participate on a canvas that was set up on the wall for the guests to participate and express themselves through drawing whatever they felt like. You could draw as much or as little as you wanted.
