CREATIVE CITY CENTRE PRESENTS REGINA WORD UP AT THE HAMPTON HUB!  

The pandemic encouraged the Creative City Centre to pivot and transform the Hague Gallery, the beloved home of open mics and poetry slams for close to a decade, into a production studio when safe in-person performances weren’t possible. The CCC now produces exciting digital content and professional development — check it out here!

We are grateful to the Hampton Hub for welcoming us into their space!   

*****  

We encourage audience members to engage during the performances – snap, make cheesecake noises (mm’s and yes), laugh, stomp, or otherwise make your appreciation known!

Feature performer:  

Lucia (Lu-chi-a) De Luca is a spoken word poet based in Tiohtià:ke (Montréal).

As an English teacher and spoken word poet, Lucia De Luca plays with stories in the classroom and at the mic. Her poetry cradles tales of her past self, family, Italian heritage, chronic illness, and love. Lucia is a recipient of the 2022 QWF Spoken Word Prize, a two-time Canadian Individual Poetry Slam finalist, and a member of the 2023 Throw Poetry Collective slam team.  Her work is published to the TEDx, Brickyard Spoken Word, Toronto Poetry Slam, and Bankstown Poetry Slam YouTube channels, as well as in online and print publications.

GUIDELINES, COMMUNITY AGREEMENTS AND CONSENT STATEMENTS  

At the Creative City Centre we always strive for inclusivity and respect in the community both inside and out of our facility, which is why we have compiled the following guidelines to remember both for our events and also in everyday life.
• We encourage respecting the way folks self-identify, without assuming gender, sexuality, orientation, religion, or ability.
• We understand that at times folks may need to leave or engage in other methods of self-care, and that’s okay.
• We encourage language that promotes inclusivity, education, and awareness and dislike all forms of explicit ignorance including, but not limited to, hate speech, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and classism.
• We encourage the culture of consent meaning we respect people’s physical, verbal, and emotional boundaries. This means respecting that some people might not want to be hugged and if you want to engage physically in any way with a person it is important to ask permission before doing so.

In partnership with the Artesian, Creative City Centre is very excited to welcome back the enchanting acoustic performer, Daniel Champagne, for a night filled with beautiful melodies and exhilarating guitar talent. Daniel Champagne lives and breathes live music. The Australian virtuoso has been described as “the finest guitar player of this generation”, “a leading light in acoustic music” and “a performer that must be seen to be believed”.  From March to June 2024, music lovers across Canada will be treated to an intimate live experience not to be missed! 

 

Growing up in the Bega Valley, on the Far South Coast of New South Wales Australia, the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he finished school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back. 

 

During the next 15 years he independently released 7 studio albums, toured relentlessly around the globe, played some of the biggest festivals under the sun and shared stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.  Playing upwards of 250 shows a year, Daniel is passionate about spreading live music around the world and on the back of a sold out 2022 tour, his return trip to Canada will include 56 shows from Vancouver Island all the way out to Newfoundland!  Tickets for this show are available by clicking here!
