Like an Open Mic Night, but for spoken word
Words in The West is a night of live spoken word, visual performance and poetry, highlighting creators and writers in Melbourne's West. The nights are aimed at creative sharing, peer appreciation and public performance skill-building.
Each gathering will highlight invited presenters, and then the floor will be opened out to the talent who join us in this open-space setting.
Your host is the inimitable Connor Ovenden-Shaw, also Known As Foot, a non-binary queer artist based on Wadawurrung land in Melbourne's outer west. Working within textile, photography and performance, they are known for their unique and absurdist take of gender identity, sustainability and beauty standards.
Listen, speak, share, laugh, think. You’re invited to Words in The West.
