Make Art

Paulina ALL Black

I am an award winning Toronto writer, performer, playwright, producer and arts educator. All to say I make a lot of art!

Some of my coolest Art Making Moments

  • Being featured in When Sisters Speak on stage at the St Lawrence Centre for the Performing Arts (2017 and 2019) – this is the largest Spoken Word Poetry show in Canada
  • Writing and presenting my first play excerpt at Piece of Mine’s Black Women in Theatre Festival (2020)
  • Inspiring thousands of students I have taught since 2007 to find their voice in poetry.

My work has also been featured in media on Bell Fibe TV, Huffington Post Canada, AfroGlobal TV, Metro Morning and CBC Morning. Check it out here. 

If you are interested in learning more about my arts practice you can find more info here.


I perform spoken word poetry.  I have performed across the country for both small and large crowds and inspiring people through my words is my favourite thing to do.

Got a special event or occasion? I do custom poems for any occasion and perform them to help bring some creativity to your special day or event.

Workshops & Coaching


I have had the absolute privilege of teaching thousands of kids, youth and adults how tofind their voice and express themselves through high energy, interactive poetry and creative writing workshops or one on one coaching sessions.

If you are interested in getting yourself, your community or your students into creative writing and performance book me for a workshop!
