Australian Poetry Slam - Ballerrt Mooroop Wordshop

Join Gamilaroi poet Luke Patterson to explore connections between language, place and community, using spoken word as a powerful medium for expression.


Participants will cultivate an array of skills encompassing diverse spoken word art forms. They will also draw on local lingo, place names, slang and other creative uses of language to produce dazzling stage-ready performances resonating with community flare.


Want to learn to turn your moments of “...Um” into MomentUm? Bring your notebook and voice to the Ballerrt Mooroop First Nations Wordshop! In partnership with Wordcraft, a spoken word collective honouring our stories raw and in process through spoken word events, workshops and more.
