First Spoken Word Community in Gaza

Causes: Arts & Culture, Education
Location: Gaza
Gaza Poets Society is a growing group of 30+ young and aspiring poets from Gaza who teamed up to form an effective and coherent society of writers in Gaza. This community of poets need your support so that they can continue to express themselves freely and fearlessly, meet and develop, share their work in public and connect with other poets and universities locally and globally. They need money to book space, curate their on-line platforms, and to train themselves as performers and writers. On the 19th of July 2018 they held their first spoken word event in Gaza, "Gaza Youth Speaks", giving twenty poets a chance to express themselves and free themselves through poetry, most of them stepping onto a stage for the first time. With your help, they can continue this work.
