Māngere Arts Centre for unique insights into this compelling literary and performance movement and the 36 poets that have come through SAPC over the past decade.
Experience an eclectic array of stories, experiences and personal truths. The group officially formed in 2008 and works by co-founders Grace Taylor, Ramon Narayan, and Daren Kamali feature in the gallery spaces, alongside a suite of work by 32 other poets.
The collective uses spoken word, written and slam poetry as tools for positive social change. Within this collective are national and international poetry slam finalists, award-winning published poets, performers, and champions.
The exhibition runs from 23 February to Saturday 6 April.
