Description

Common Ground Returns!


Common Ground is a multilingual, multi-faith spoken word workshop series by CAN in partnership with Multicultural Arts Victoria.

Connect with other young people (15 years and over) from diverse cultures and faiths to create new expressions in spoken word poetry. Unleash your inner poet and help us all find the common ground that brings us together!

Join us for six FREE weekly spoken word workshop series facilitated by acclaimed performance poet Sukhjit Khalsa and 2017 Australian Slam Poetry Champion, Jesse Oliver. The workshops are open to people over the age of 15 from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.


“Common Ground isn’t about pushing out more poets into the world, it’s about creating a space for open conversations around faith and identity and how we can use art to translate those thoughts onto a powerful platform that is spoken word!” said Sukhjit.


No previous experience is necessary.

The workshops will be held over 6 Saturdays in May and June, and will culminate in a performance showcase on June 18.
