Getting There

In a disconnected world, spoken word has the power to reach out, touch hearts and give purpose.

The physical and social distancing of the last two years has meant that our deeply human need to continue to connect meaningfully with others has forced us online – and made us innovate.

Connecting Worlds with Words is a new grassroots-led spoken word event and collaboration between three major urban public spaces: Fed Square in Melbourne, Bunjil Place in Casey and Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre in Auckland.

Through embracing new technologies, the three-venue live virtual-physical hybrid event will activate public urban spaces and celebrate the power of spoken word and story to connect communities across time and space.

Featuring spoken word artists from New Zealand and Australia, each venue will feature live spoken word performances while connecting via livestream to each partner venue, and broadcasting across the ditch to each of the three venue’s major public screens.

This first-of-its-kind event is presented by Fed Square, Bunjil Place and Auckland Live in partnership with spoken word collectives Littlefoot and Co, Melbourne Spoken Word and Action Education.
