Speak Up!

Spoken word is a performance art that is word-based. It often includes collaboration and experimentation with other art forms such as music, theater, and dance. However, spoken word usually tends to focus on the words themselves, the dynamics of tone, gestures, facial expressions, and not so much on the other art forms.

In entertainment, spoken-word performances generally consist of storytelling or poetry. One just needs to type 'Spoken Word' in to youtube to see how effective the artform is for getting a story or a point of view across.

Extremely popular with young people around the world and in parts of New Zealand, this art has not really made an impact here in Rotorua. So, Wera has decided to bring members of the South Auckland Poets Collective, to the Sulphar City to teach and mentor some groups of local youth.

The South Auckland Poets Collective was first established in 2008 by co-founders Grace Taylor, Ramon Narayan and Daren Kamali as part of an initiative under Youthline. One of the values still held by this collective is to use spoken word poetry as a tool for positive social change with a focus on young people.

The Workshops are:

Tuesday 26th of November 2013
5:30pm - 8:30pm
Oasis Youth Centre Ngongotaha

Friday 29th of November 2013
4:30pm - 8:30pm
Rotorua Community Youth Centre

Saturday 30th November 2013
10AM - 5pm
Rotorua Community Youth Centre
