Elevate is a community looking to elevate one another, elevate their skills, elevate their community, and elevate their lives to a new level. Through support and collaboration with like-minded people and community initiatives, we will elevate our impact on our local community.

March is our first Elevate on Instagram Live and we are being joined by Nisha Patel @anothernisha We'll be hearing Nisha's story, there will be the opportunity for Q&A, and maybe, just maybe, we'll hear a performance from this POWERFUL poet! Make sure you are following @elevatebytve on Instagram and turn on your notifications so you don't miss this experience.

Nisha is an award-winning queer poet & artist. She is the City of Edmonton’s Poet Laureate, and the 2019 Canadian Individual Slam Champion, and the 2021 Regional Writer in Residence with the Strathcona County Library. She is a recipient of the Edmonton Artists’ Trust Fund Award and the University of Alberta Alumni Award of Excellence. Her debut collection COCONUT is available in April with Newest Press. You can find her at nishapatel.ca.

We go live at 7 pm MST!
