Spoken Word Performance

According to, spoken word poetry is a word-based performance art where speakers engage in powerful self-expression by sharing their views on particular topics for a live audience, focusing on sound and presentation.

Consistent with the theme and objective of the Summit, this performance aims to shine the spotlight on spoken word poetry as an art and the existing “collectives” or groups. They will be performing on the topics of life, love and society. [spoken-word]
