Rough Lives Speak

We are spoilt with 6 poets this summer from the Street Poets & Artists Collective Enterprises (SPACE)
So we are giving you 3 whole months to share new work from their fantastic 2022 collection “Rough Lives Speak with your communities!

Writing out of hard times, out of remembrances and positive moments, these poems speak, in a special way, of lives that matter and of our common humanity.

David Eggleton- Poet Laureate Aotearoa NZ

This collective comes with heart and great courage in sharing their unique stories

Daren Kamali- Poet, mentor and friend

SPACE will also be special guests at our party alongside their mentor Daren Kamali. So come on down to Thirsty Dog on December 4th 2pm to hear these talented poets read from their work and talanoa with them in a relaxed environment.
