It is that time of the year again where we celebrate the voices that often serve as a compass to the voices inside of own heads.
Introducing the 6th edition of the Word N Sound International Youth Poetry Festival. This year the festival brings together some of the most vocal and potent minds of our time in a main event that looks set to be a true meeting of ‘Dangerous Minds’.
The festival features the international exploits of Alysia Harris (US), Ngwatilo Mawiyoo (Ken) and Elten Kiene (NL); beside a cast of local word magicians. Stay tuned for all the artist announcements.
The Spotlight events for the festival, both taking place at the John kani Theatre, are undoubtedly the Poetry League Finale where will crown our champion for 2016 and the star-studded Poetry Is.
Catch all this and more at the 6th edition of the Word N Sound International Youth Poetry Festival, from the 3rd to the 9th of October 2016 at the Market Theatre.
Tickets for the festival will be available through the Market Theatre onwww.markettheatre.co.za and range from R95 to R200 while workshops, panel discussions and the Poetry Video Festival are free.
