Shane Koyczan touched millions of Canadians who were watching the opening ceremonies at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, where he performed “We are More.”

Koyczan is known for his powerful spoken word poems and has collaborated with animators and musicians to make the anti-bullying video “To This Day” which has gone viral with over 21 million views on YouTube.

Koyczan, an internationally recognized author and spoken word artist is performing at North Bay’s Capitol Centre on November 23 at 7:30 pm. There will be a pre-show poetry slam in the Galaxy Circle Lounge at 6:00 pm, featuring a lineup of various local poets. Some free slots for those who would like to share will also be set aside.
