For the 26th consecutive year, the Poetry Africa festival, sets the stage for poetry from South Africa and around the world. Presented by the Centre for Creative Arts at the University of Kwazulu-Natal, this unique event takes place from 6 to 16 October 2022 in Johannesburg and Durban – specially, inviting you to attend!
With the theme: Poetic (In)Justice: voices that breathe, move and transform, it promises to be an enriching experience. The festival presents a programme full of poetry from established poets, young inspiring talents and spoken-word artists from South Africa and abroad. Johannesburg, Durban and the digital space will be buzzing with the sound of poets performing live as they bring their passionate, inspirational perspectives on life and current events and the power and beauty of the spoken word.
