Join us for for GriffinSpeak’s first spoken word and poetry event at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies, featuring Awale Ahmed and Alushka Rajararam
Spoken word with Awale Ahmed and Alushka Rajararam
GriffinSpeak, convened by poets Sharifa A Tartoussi and Aamon Sayed, is back in person after a two-year hiatus and is kicking off with not one, but two powerhouse features in our new home at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies in North Melbourne.
We are thrilled to have Alushka Rajaram and Awale Ahmed on the night, who will be joining us to start a new era of storytelling placing people who have been on the margins, particularly BIPOC people, at its centre.
Please book to attend.
When you book via Eventbrite you’ll be sent tix via email, please print out or show on the night, we will also have tix on the door for sale.
We are also back with spaces on the open mic, 3-5 minute slots, in which to share to your heart’s content
If you’d like to hop on the open mic please let the GriffinSpeak organisers know, DM them via Instagram, or let them know on the day (we are so flex).
Unfortunately, IPCS is not fully wheelchair accessible with a large step into the space from the back entrance and a short flight of stairs from the front. Toilets are also up a flight of stairs from our main space. We apologise for the inconvenience.
We acknowledge that GriffinSpeak and its related activities take place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge that the tradition of oral story originated with the first nations people of this land, we acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and this always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.Back to top
