Tanya Evanson

A multilingual poet, spoken-word artist, singer, whirling dervish, and arts organizer, Montreal-born Tanya Evanson has published five poetry chapbooks and two spoken-word music CDs, The Memorists and Invisible World. Now resident in Vancouver, the creator of the award-winning videopoem “Almost Forgot My Bones” has also been featured in documentaries, anthologies, international recordings, and on national TV and radio. When Evanson isn’t touring internationally with music group Mercan Dede and others, her Mother Tongue Media organization produces art events that bridge disciplines and cultures.
