Online - Zoom and Fbook Live
Christchurch
Come join us at New Zealand's only regular online poetry event with a seemingly wholesome but utterly ridiculous community - this Sunday for our much loved open mic, with poets performing from all over the world, and feature session! https://www.facebook.com/events/5080148988768315 This time with a 20 minute set from US poet, film-maker and Your Place Grand Slam runner up - Najya Williams! For those that aren't familiar with Najya, here's a wee bio: Born and raised in "Chocolate City," Najya Williams (she/her) is a poet, filmmaker, and performer. Her debut poetry chapbook, "Cotton," spoken word album, "mad black woman," and original short films are available online via her website, najyawilliams.com. Looking ahead, Najya remains committed to changing hearts and minds across the world, one word at a time. ............................................................................................................. As always, this event at Your Place is pay-what-you-can-afford, because finances should not be a barrier to art. HOWEVER if people do not honour that trust-system then this event becomes unsustainable and cannot continue so if you can afford it, please do – the money goes towards paying our artists and keeping this whole thing up and running. And if you cannot afford anything, still come along and enjoy the poetry with my blessing (though do please help us out by sharing the event and getting some other folks along – that’d be amazing!) – we believe in human kindness at Your Place, so hopefully someone who can afford it will pay a bit more and cover you ☺.
