An Evening With Shane Koyczan

Headshot of Shane Koyczan

Don't miss award-winning poet and spoken word artist Shane Koyczan, as we welcome him back for a performance in the Jenny Belzberg Theatre.

There seems no shortage of adjectives to describe a Shane Koyczan show. Moving, hilarious, challenging, provocative, or inspirational. Take your pick. Here is a writer that takes you on a tour of your own feelings in a way that leaves you grasping for your own heart just to make sure it's still in your chest. His work has become a staple in schools for both its impact and reach. Shane curates a kind of art gallery that displays sculptures of the human experience each time he speaks. Lauded for his sold out live performances Koyczan has carved out his own artistic path beyond the conventional.

"The Banff Centre of the Arts has long been a favourite spot of mine. Any opportunity to come back to soak in some inspiration has been deeply appreciated. I am so excited to return and bring along a bag full of stories, poetry, laughs and tears. Let’s talk about the arts… the medicine that got us through it."
