Poetry Debate! Omar Musa vs Evelyn Araluen

Two of the Festival’s most electrifying poets go head to head in the ultimate poetry showdown. Evelyn Araluen squares off against award–winning Millefiori author and rapper Omar Musa to debate all things poetry. In three action-packed rounds, they examine whether technology is shaping poetry for the better, whether poets should tell other people’s stories, and whether schools are teaching the wrong poetry. SWF Youth Curators Sina Aghamofid, Ali Al Haj and Layla Mkhayber moderate this exciting event. There can only be one winner. You decide!

Programmed with SWF Youth Curators. Supported by the City of Parramatta and the Department of Family and Community Services
