Ali co-hosts a monthly spoken word evening called Poetry in Motion on the first Wednesday of the month at Meow Cafe on Edward Street, Wellington, featuring both local and touring artists. PIM is an inclusive community which aims to raise the profile of spoken word as a fun and entertaining art form and challenge people's notions of what poetry is and can be. This is a forum for sharing musings, ideas, laughter, tears and views on life with a community of people who love words and performance in a lively bar atmosphere.
The evenings usually begin with an open mic session, followed by a rotating combination of feature performers, spotlight performers, themed poetry sessions, poetry slams or other open poetry competitions. The large majority of these events are open to anyone who wishes to sign up on the night. Specific details of month-to-month events are available on Poetry in Motion's Facebook page
All are welcome, the spoken word revolution is coming and you are invited to hop on board! $3 - 5 entry, sliding scale.
Poetry in Motion @ Meow Cafe, 9 Edward Street, Wellington. First Wednesday of the month, 7.30pm
