Waiheke Poetry Festival ‘In the Air – Sun 22nd Mar | 11am – 3.30pm
Now in its 6th Year..
The Annual Waiheke Poetry Festival event of 2015 has been designed and organised to appeal to older and younger poets and lovers of poetry alike, and will be held rain or shine on Sunday March 22nd….
At the Artworks Amphitheatre.. ( By the new library)
( buses from ferry stop right outside)
Tracing its ancestry back through the ages, poetry is one of the oldest writing arts and a much beloved one in the creative community of Waiheke..
It has always been a wonderful way of communicating and sharing our tales and stories, fables and lyrics within and beyond our own communities.
This year we welcome some of our brothers and sisters from very gifted South Auckland Poets Collective too..
Whether round the camp fires or communal hearths, in village squares or congregational areas of old, or the halls and Libraries of our present, the Waiheke Poetry Festival is now a tradition that we invite past and new poets to participate in this year….
Fortunate enough to have a wonderful new space at the Artworks Amphitheatre this Spring, we are delighted to confirm we have a wonderful lineup of local and locally linked poets already confirmed to read and perform…
We would love you too if this is something you have also wanted to do..
So please come early if you also wish to participate in the open mike….(5 minute max spots still available)
Endorsed by the local board and Auckland Council, the committee of In the Air are very grateful for their financial support….
