Kickstart REVERB

Co-presented with the Kickstart Society for Disability Culture and REVERB: a queer reading series

The dog days in August bring languid evenings, raw mornings, hot afternoons. This year, as part of the Queer Arts Festival, they also bring an alchemical collaboration between Kickstart Disability Arts and REVERB: A Queer Reading Series, with words from communities united against normalcy, the best of strange bedfellows. Kickstart produces and presents work by artists with disabilities in a variety of disciplines. REVERB is a quarterly reading series with an anti-oppressive framework that showcases emerging and established queer writers on unceded Musqueam, Sḵwxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh land.

On August 6th, join us for an evening of literary readings from queers with and without disabilities. Presenting work by Irit Shimrat, Seema Shah, Jotika, romham padraig gallacher, Katrina Elisse Caudle and Alex Lu.

Like they say, expect the unexpected, because the seas might boil.

ASL interpretation is confirmed. This event is scent-reduced, and fully wheelchair accessible. For more information on how to support a scent-reduced event, please visit For a full accessibility audit of the space, visit Building Radical Accessible Communities.

The Radical Accessibility Mapping Project performed an accessibility audit for the Roundhouse in August 2011, and the space has remained the same since.
