RISING VOICES SLAM POETRY WORKSHOPS AND COMPETITION

A little notice from our friend Tusiata Avia.  This is an amazing opportunity for any young people (16-24 years) interested in performance poetry.  This Saturday!

RISING VOICES SLAM POETRY WORKSHOPS AND COMPETITION


Starts Saturday 3 August 10-12 pm

Aranui Library, 109 Aldershot St


Rising Voices is the only youth slam in NZ - for 16 to 24 year olds. Originated by Grace Taylor and Jai MacDonald - this is a slam with a difference. You will go through 6 weeks (6 Saturdays) of intensive writing and performance workshops to get you ready to compete.

If you have never done slam poetry before, but enjoy writing and performing, and would like to give it a try - we welcome you.

At the end of the workshops, we will have a local slam competition and the 2 winners will go to Auckland to compete in the Auckland Rising Voices Slam Competition at The Edge, Aotea Centre.

Mentors are: Daisy Lavea-Timo and Tusiata Avia

Presented by Niu Navigations and sponsored by CNZ and The Edge.
