Sunday Spoken Word – ‘Just One Thing’ poetry event in Whangarei

A spoken word event Sunday July 2 in Whangarei was a chance for fresh poets to perform alongside experienced poets.

CCS Disability Action Northland had been running a series of creative arts workshops in which young people have had an opportunity to create and tell their own stories as spoken word monologues.

Those powerful poems, giving insight into the lives of disabled members of the community, were performed to the public at the event. Performances also came from the Poetry Posse (Vincent Nathan, Vivian Thonger, Brett Ruys, Michael Botur, Nga-Atawhainga Manukau), the Whangarei Girls High poetry crew (Jorja Heta, Shian Cottam, Emma Hutchinson) and singer/guitarist Koea Kaka.
