An eye for an eye - Amnesty international
Amnesty International & Word Travels join forces to present a very special poetry slam. Poets are invited to explore the theme of ‘an eye for an eye’ at the legendary Basement on 10 April in response to Amnesty International’s recent campaign to raise awareness about capital punishment.
The event will feature Sudanese refugee and nationally acclaimed poet Abe Nouk. Abe fled the prospect of becoming a child soldier in his native Sudan and arrived illiterate in Australia. He is now settled in Melbourne and last year took third place in the Australian Poetry Slam. He will soon be releasing his first book and was featured on the ABC’s 7.30 Report.
