FLOCK Festival | WORDSMITH RELAY: Poetry Slam with Neon Readings
Perth’s staple poet of the port, Saoirse Nash of Neon Readings, hosts an evening of open mic for word-lovers and poets alike. Bring a poem to share – your own, or a favourite. Everyone’s welcome. Imagination, witty and soft words: Come listen and/or share with us! Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Saoirse Nash is a performance poet, born and raised in rural Ireland but now living in Perth, Western Australia. She has featured at many gigs around the city as well as the 2017 National Young Writer’s Festival in Newcastle. Poetry is important to Saoirse not only as a form of catharsis but also as an act of protest.
This event is part of FLOCK FESTIVAL, a 31 day showcase of WA Creativity & Culture in October 2022 in celebration of Pigeonhole’s 15th Anniversary. PIGEONHOLE is a retail store established in Perth in 2007 celebrating friendship and curating beautiful things that bring joy to you and those you love.
