Lagos Biennial 2017 Presents outSPOKEN on the 19th & 28th of October


Stay woke people! Another very special edition of outSPOKEN is happening today, in collaboration with Lagos Biennial 2017. The first part kicks off at our usual spot – The Revolving Arts Incubator at the Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, hosted by yours truly, RezthaPoet with Pietrina and the Africa Music Class of MUSON.

On the 28th of this Month, there will be another mind-blowing outSPOKEN event, featuring guest appearance by Chief Lari Williams at Jaekel House Railway Compound, Ebute Metta by 4pm. You really don’t want to miss any of these shows, trust me! 🙂

Sponsored by Amarula Nigeria, the Lagos Biennial 2017 is guided by the narrative theme of ‘Living on the Edge’. With this theme the Biennial wishes to capture the geographical, spiritual and psychological ramifications of what it is to exist on ‘the margin’.

outSPOKEN is a fortnightly Spokenword/Poetry event and an initiative of the Revolving Art Incubator (RAI), dedicated to Poets, Spokenword Artists and Lyricists. Borne out of the idea to have spoken word artists reflect on the ongoing state of affairs and all other topical issue as a poetic diary of contemporary times in Nigeria.
