This event is a part of a tour hosted by Unity Grammar to encourage empowerment within our community. The Bankstown Poetry Slam will co-host the night as they offer up some of their best talents. Sara Mansour, Roje Ndayambaje and Sarah Saleh are amongst some of the poets performing on the night.

Western Sydney’s youth are mobilising poetry to peacefully protest the socio-political issues facing our community.  It is these voices that need to be projected to the wider community and challenge the negative perceptions of Western Sydney.

Online tickets are available now for this night of empowerment and inspiration. Early Bird tickets are $10 till 17 March, and $20 thereafter.

The event will also cater to the Deaf Community with two Auslan interpreters.
