Poetry in Motion (PIM) is an inclusive group which aims to raise the profile of spoken word as a fun and entertaining art form and challenge people's notions of what poetry is and can be. This is a forum for sharing musings, ideas, laughter, tears and views on life in a community of people who love words and performance in a lively bar atmosphere.
PIM holds monthly spoken word evenings on the first Thursday of the month at Fringe Bar on Allen Street, with both local and touring feature artists. We have an open mic portion and featured poets, and occasionally have one-off events outside of our first Thursdays. Slam season is towards the end of the year, ending with the regional poetry slam finals in October leading in to the National Finals in November.
All are welcome, the spoken word revolution is coming and you are invited to hop onboard!
