The InArms project was staged by the Edmonton Poetry Festival in collaboration with members from the Canadian Military. The project featured poetry, a web presence, and a live performance.

Challenges & Goals

The InArms project was multi-faceted. The goal of the project was to tell the stories of Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan through poetry. The Edmonton Poetry Festival provided mentorship to some military poets, who honed and worked two dozen poems. The poems were then combined into a cohesive live performance which took place at the Royal Alberta Museum and featured theatre actors, musicians, visual elements, and a piper. I was honoured to supply the website creation and administration, and I was on stage as an actor, reading my words and those of military personnel. InArms is among my most treasured projects.
