Painting in tongues poetry slam
July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm AEST
Join us for a night of colourful language at Hawthorn’s House of Letters(aka Hawthorn Library), featuring Henry Briffa. This space will be christened with words by Henry before being opened up to the floor. You’ll have three minutes to fill the stage—the blank canvas—with whatever you feel like. No theme, no safety net, just you and the microphone.Please be aware that this event may contain adult themes.
