Spoken Word Poetry Blantyre Movement has organized a Spoken Word poetry event under the banner ‘Independence Poetry’ at KwaHaraba Art Gallery on the 26th of July from 18:00 to 19:30 hours.
The event has been slated for Wednesday night so that it should be like the usual Wednesday free of charge open mic sessions that the Spoken Word Poetry Blantyre Movement (SWPBM) hosts at the same venue. This session will however run for one and a half hours, half an hour longer than the usual one.
For this special session, charges are K2000 per head. The money realized from the show will be used to buy paraffin lamps (Nyali) which will be donated to Unga Primary School in Thyolo for use by pupils in their nights of study. This has been done as a manifestation of the desire to improve academic performance at the school.
Poets who are set to perform at the event are Leme, Chimwemwe Moyo, Breema, Brian T. Kalinde, Geminii, and Tawonga Taddja Nkhonjera.
Independence will be the central theme for the poetry.
