Australian Poetry Presents: Poetically Pushing Against Dominant Narratives

Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 1:30 pm

What does a poetry look like that crosses over, crosses into, ignores very real invisible lines? What does a poetry influenced by lived experience, look like? Can poetic voices be created anew by interrogating that which is traditionally excluded from the poetic voice? A photographic poetry, one that is multi-gendered, words heard and collected from places called “other”.

Each writer/poet/artist will read five minutes of their own chosen work, and then choose a poet’s or artist’s work which has influenced their own, to read or share.
