CineFAM 2021 Media Launch – 5 Years of Limitless Imagination (LIVE)
August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Host: Shakkoi Hibbert
Shakkoi, also known as, “Need Some Koi”, is a multi-talented facilitator, spoken word artist, author and dance fitness instructor. She put her passion for words to print by self publishing two poetry books, titled, The Poetic transitions from a Hot Head to a Conscious Queen in 2018, and The Conscious Queen; Volume 1 Featuring the After Dark Edition in 2020. Shakkoi graduated from the University of Toronto, with a degree majoring in sociology and minoring in African and media studies. In 2020, after she saw the need for communication during such a critical time, she created a program called Floetry Fitness that encourages Black people to express themselves verbally through poetry. While promoting movement through dance workshops for everyone else. With plenty of experiences to share, Shakkoi’s unique and raw approaches to storytelling through movement and poetry reminds us that everyone needs some Koi in their lives. linktr.ee/needsomekoi
