Mumbai has been teaming with poets and budding artists for the longest time and the city is set to host some of the best and the brightest poets this weekend. A congregation like no other brought to you by two of the biggest upcoming labels in the Indian spoken word circuit – UnErase Poetry & Spill Poetry. The Habitat Mumbai brings to you the best poets from both these labels.
The Poetry Confluence 2017 as it is called is set to be a showcase of the journey of Indian Spoken Word Poetry over the last year and will include panel discussions with curators, spoken word artists, poets, writers, activists, and filmmakers. There are a total of four sessions with over two sessions for each label. One can choose which session to watch or purchase individual tickets for both sessions.
The event is one of a kind in the sense that it will bring together talented poets together with the exciting possibility of creating something new. With this thought in mind, the organizers have also planned a Meet-Up in between both the sessions from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, where one can freely meet the teams behind these labels and even talk about collaborations!
Some of the notable artists at the event are – Aranya Johar, Shamir Reuben, Gaurav Tripathi, Priya Malik, Nadeem Raj, Ramneek Singh, Devroop Sharma, Jackie Thakker, Shivani Gupta, Krishna Iyer and many more.
