Bella Union will be transformed into our very own "School of Poetics" where all the Poets and audience are "majoring" in the art of Poetry. So bring your berets, cigarillos and drink the red wine. Special guest Mantra will be starting our assembly with an opening address and DJ Sean M Whelan will be calling the recess breaks at which point wordsmiths, mc's, freestylers and artists from all disciplines are welcome to jump up on stage and engage in a circle cypher when the bell rings!
And who better to SHOW US HOW POETRY IS DONE than the phenomenal Melbourne legend Monkhouse MC and notorious Steve Smart?
