Spoken Word Sessions: Farkhonda Akbar, Sean M Whelan and Grace Vanilau
Thu 15 Oct 2015, 1.00pm
Six culturally and linguistically diverse spoken-word poets drop in to MPavilion in October for two Spoken Word Sessions—and this is the first! The lunchtime slams are highlights of Igniting Imagination—a collaboration between Melbourne Festival and Multicultural Arts Victoria that brings exceptional talent from Australia’s emerging, Indigenous and refugee communities to the stage. Featured in this first session: Hazara activist Farkhonda Akbar, poet-turned-playwright Sean M Whelan and Samoan artist Grace Vanilau.
