Word art at 151  Session 4 : Young Voices

The evening of session 4 of Word art at 151 nestled in a crowd of poetry lovers and a group 5 talented young poets. Session 4 aimed to celebrate the bold voices of the future of literature.

The poets dove into hard-hitting topics –  the injustices of society and their personal explorations of love, spirituality and democracy – incarnated in the expression of their own lived experiences whilst clad in the intricacies of potent word selection. This group was a manifestation of a dynamic shift in South African literature.

Word Art at 151 looks forward to continuously growing support towards this program dedicated to poetry and spoken word. Keep a look out for more information on session 5 in our monthly newsletters.
