An Evening with Rupi Kaur: World-Famous Instagram Poet
Fresh off the heels of a three-month international tour, one of the newly announced inductees to the Arts Walk of Fame, Rupi Kaur, returns in her hometown of Brampton, Ontario, for an encore performance and special award presentation on April 26 by Mayor Linda Jeffrey. An Evening with Rupi Kaur, co-presented by the City of Brampton, The Rose and Ontario Sikh Heritage Month, will capture the magic of her stage performance intertwined with musical interactions of poetry, art and theatre.
Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. Over the last three years, her works have taken the literary world by storm. Her newest book, the sun and her flowers--an instant global bestseller, is an artistic sibling to her debut, milk and honey--America's best selling book of 2017, that catapulted her to fame and global recognition (named one of BBC's Top 100 Women).
Rupi explores a variety of themes in her work ranging from love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, migration, and revolution. She's a storyteller and chronicler--a repository of community and history. There's a simplicity and nuance to her work that has found a home in the hearts of millions, including her 2.5 million followers on Instagram.
