Join in for the Western Sydney final of the Australian Poetry Slam.
Spoken word and storytelling are key elements of intangible heritage. Heritage Near Me is proud to co-host with Word Travels, the Western Sydney final of Australian Poetry Slam.
Word Travels is the International Performing Writers' Association. As a not for profit arts organisation, they organise literary and literacy programs for festivals, private companies, libraries, schools and cultural institutions around the Asia Pacific with a focus on developing performing writers. You can find them in theatres, schools, board rooms, health institutions, night clubs, prisons, regional towns, abandoned restaurants and libraries.
Word Travels believes that spoken-word artists, poets, hip-hop artists, story-tellers and monologists can develop an industry equal to that of actors, musicians and writers. Their main objective is to inspire people to tell their stories in creative ways, primarily through live performance.
