About this event

Poetry & Pies : Provocate

FRIDAY 30, 2021

Pick up dinner from Lil' Crumb.

7pm Poetry

Solitude. Isolation. Silence. Noise. Hope. Fear. Belonging. Community. The year that was 2020 brought us many things. A time of shutting down, it was a time of looking inward as we thought about what it meant to be human, exist in society and move about in this world.

It was also a moment to think about whose lives matter, whose deaths were tragedies and whose were quotidian or collateral, whose voices were listened to, and governance structures/outlets/platforms that enabled or silenced or incited.

If reading and writing are subversive acts, poetry/spoken words can be our most elegant tool to convey emotion, horror, dissent, awareness, beauty, lived experience. WordFest invites you to use your ‘most powerful, dangerous and subversive trait’, your language, in Provocate: our 2021 Poetry & Pies event.

Your penned lines, or someone else’s that resonates with you, Provocate is spoken word. Performed by our community, for our community, ONLINE via PODCAST.
