Love Notes and Coffee

August 14, 2018
Engineered Air Theatre


After a highly successful first event at Philosafy Coffee, artistic matchmaker, poet and author Harpreet M Dayal brings Love Notes and Coffee to Arts Commons. At this FREE event, spoken word artists flirt with painters, dancers, and musicians, creating a love note to Calgary and sharing it with the universe and beyond. Enjoy a drink, a coffee or tea and sip in the latest works from some of Calgary’s most compelling local artists – these are the voices redefining the mainstream.

A British born South Asian Artist working in community engagement, Harpreet aspires to create safer spaces to gather, create, and connect with one another around that most powerful human quality – love. Love Notes and Coffee has been created as a forum for artists and audiences to experiment, mix, mingle, and confirm for ourselves that we are all indeed more similar than we are different.

Completed in 1994 the Engineered Air Theatre carries on the tradition of having a theatre located in its exact location for over 100 years, even incorporating rescued decorative elements from the old Empress Theatre into both its theatre and lobby design. In the summer of 2016, the Engineered Air had a face lift with the comfier chairs and updated décor.
