Poetry to spark connections in Logan park

- Advertisement -spot_img

Kingston youth worker and writer Lamisse Hamouda will launch a new venture next
week to provide a space for artists and people to connect.

Logan-born hip hop artist Ethan Enoch-Barlow will be the feature poet at the launch
event of Poetry in the Park and will also emcee the event.

The initiative is open to anyone interested in spoken word performance ranging
from new to experienced poets.

It will give established poets the chance to test their new work and allow new poets
to build their performance skills and confidence.

Logan City Council City Lifestyle Committee Chairperson Councillor Laurie
Koranski said Poetry in the Park would provide an opportunity for Logan residents
to develop their spoken word performance skills.

“It will create a place where people can join together and gain invaluable
experience,” Cr Koranski said.

“We encourage anyone who wants to perform or anyone who simply wants to listen
to some great live performances to head to Logan Gardens for Poetry in the Park.”
Poetry in the Park will run from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday, January 28 in Logan
Gardens in Logan Central.

It will then run from January to May with the next session scheduled for Thursday,
February 18.

During a winter break creative writing workshops will be held before the program
resumes in the park between September and December.

There will be 16 mic spots available on the night.

People can sign up before the event via eventbrite.com.au/e/poetry-in-the-park-1-
logan-gardens or on the day if there are still spaces.

More information and event updates are available on Facebook and Instagram.
The project is funded by the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).
RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Logan City
Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
