Mashed Poetics: Spice
Mashed Poetics is a spoken word and music mash-up. Picture this: a band is formed for the sole purpose of learning a classic music album. Poets from across the country are wrangled and assigned songs from said album. Poets will present new works inspired by the song they are assigned. In this edition of Mashed Poetics, the band and poets take on the 1996 album Spice by the Spice Girls.

You'll note on arrival a set of railed stairs leading into the Hall. The wheelchair accessible entrance is around back. For certain events there will be someone posted at the door throughout the event and/or a bell system will be rigged up to ensure no one has to wait out there to be let in. If this has not been clarified by organizers already, please consider contacting them for details.
Once inside, youll find a spacious wood-floored hall, open concept, tables and chairs set up throughout. The stage (accessible only via stairs) is to your left, and the washrooms towards the back of the hall. The washrooms are currently gendered, but sometimes will be marked gender neutral. There are two sets of washrooms. The one to the left of the bar is currently marked men is on the same level and is now wheelchair accessible, with 2 urinals and one wheelchair access stall and one non-wheelchair access stall. The one to the right of the bar, currently marked women, is wheelchair accessible with no urinals and one additional stall. *update as of June 2013: please note that a new, wheelchair accessible mens bathroom has been created. The finishing touches are still being added, and the door has been adjusted to more easily fit wheelchair/scooter users, but overall the space is great.
