The Said Poets Society, a local non-profit, is running a four-workshop performance poetry masterclass over four weeks with 10 Victoria Park locals, culminating in a performance poetry showcase open to the whole community.
Performance poetry is a dynamic and personal art form that draws out people’s stories and brings communities together through common humanity. This will be a great chance for Vic Park residents to share themselves with their community and feel empowered through the arts.
Participants can be of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience - at Said Poets, we pride ourselves on our ability to turn anybody into a poet.
These workshops are open to Vic Park residents of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience, and our performance showcase will be a diverse collection of stories from within the community.
