ODE. would like to invite you to a poetry reading event to recognize and remember what happened in Japan 70 years ago. No other country has experienced an atomic bomb dropped on to civilians.
We see it as our mission to keep reminding the world, to not let these little voices die.
This is not a political event.
These poems are read to remember and to call for world peace at home and abroad.

ODE. - Pockets Of Light
Céline is currently working as a Producer with ODE., a Vancouver based innovative company.
ODE. is a collective of diverse Artists and Business professionals producing in the Entertainment Arts, employing a community based resource model, to create and inspire.
"Our collective seeks to attract a diverse and international team or family of members to bring inspiration and innovation to every project. To refresh the world… to inspire moments of optimism and happiness…to inspire and nurture the human spirit one person at a time.
We are constantly focusing on innovating. We believe in the simple, not the complex. We participate in markets where we can make a significant contribution. We believe in saying no to some projects so that we can focus on the ones that are truly important to us. We believe in deep collaboration and cross-pollination of our groups, which allows us to innovate in a way that others cannot and we do not settle for anything less than excellence in every group of the collective. We can admit when we are wrong and have the courage to change."
Céline is the Production Manager and Producer as well as a participating Actor for ODE.'s first project : Pockets Of Light - Ode to Inspiration – a visual jazz-bar, an event where up to 12 artists have created a mélange of songs, films and live work inspired by the word Love.
This project consists of 4 composers each creating an instrumental piece based on LOVE, gifting those to 4 filmmakers who are inspired to make 4 original films inspiring 4 choreographers/directors to create live art for a public event of performances and networking.
Pokets Of Light will take place on November 27th 2013 at Ginger62 - doors open at 6.30pm
Ginger62 - 1219 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 1M6
