The Poetry Confluence 2017 is here to poem you up
The Poetry Confluence: Dec 17, 2017
Venue: The Habitat, Khar
If you’re even a little bit into freestyle poems, or into Limerick, or into Elegy, or into satire, or into politics, or into epics, or into history, or into present, or into anything, Spill Poetry and UnErase Poetry are waiting at their next gig for you.
At this millenialized Kavi Sammelan, you are going to be enthralled by some real and honest writeups and poetic pieces by stars of the upcoming poetry community. The artist panel of the poetry confluence include Aranya Johar, Gaurav Tripathi, Priya Malik, Nadeem Raj, Ramneek Singh, Devroop Sharma, Jackie Thakker, Shivani Gupta, and Krishna Iyer
Poetry in the recent times has seen an unforeseen shift in the interest of people. Thanks to the world we are living in. With the wave of communalism, extreme religionism, colonization and whatnot, people are finding solace in the satirical and honest poetry.
As per bookmyshow.com where the tickets for Early Birds are over and Regular ones are available for INR 249
The meetup will celebrate the journey of Indian Spoken Word Poetry over the last year and includes a showcase by each of the labels with performances by their best poets (which will be recorded live for their YouTube channels) Panel Discussions with Curators, Spoken Word Artists, Poets, Writers, Activists, and Filmmakers. Choose which session you’d like to watch or purchase your tickets individually for the entire evening!
The best part about the meetup is that you can actually meet the people behind these labels and talk about collaborations. I know it is a downer for Delhi as this whole poetry ecosystem is growing faster and at much more insane level in Mumbai. But hush guys, the grapevine tells that there will something huge soon in the capital as well. Meanwhile, you’ve got a train to catch.
