Here is what the City says about our event on Friday…
Valentine’s Day Slam Poetry
Friday, February 13, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Celebrate Valentine’s Eve with…a poetry slam!
Be entertained by energetic, love-themed slam poetry performances by poets from the Capital Poetry Collective. You’ll also be introduced to traditional 19thcentury poems by Nepean’s unofficial poet laureate, William Wilfred Campbell. Nepean’s contemporary slam poets may differ greatly in style from their 19th century counterparts but their exploration of love, a theme that favours emotion over reason, remains the same. Join us for a unique date night or night out with friends.
Cost: $10/person (includes light refreshments and desserts)
Location: Nepean Museum
