SpeakUP: Poetic Justice

Provided by:

Event runs from 7:30 PM to 9:45 PM


Presented by The Art House and Lead By Story SpeakUP: Poetic Justice has activated the Central Coast and surrounding regions through pop-up spoken word performances and workshops over the last two months. This is the dynamic finale event featuring one of Australia’s leading poets, Joel McKerrow. Spoken word empowers the voices of those who traditionally may not have a platform to speak from, and fosters cohesive, diverse community by exposing mixed audience groups to a broad number of stories and perspectives evoking empathy, curiosity and awareness. Spoken word poetry is a powerful medium to safely and constructively explore dangerous ideas and foster dialogue about issues of justice, equity and social change. This project will deliver high quality performances of a national standard while, empowering local voices to join a creative conversation about the most pressing issues people face today. Join them before the performance for a pop-up bar, live music, and the She The Change fair fashion expo. Entry Cost All tickets $15 - Adult AUD25. Concession AUD15. Student AUD15.
