Poetry Sydney and Macquarie University are thrilled to present N E W S : Poets from the North . East . West . South; a collaborative venture that celebrates the work of poets from the literary departments of four universities in Sydney and greater Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
The significance of the project on innovations on the partnerships that pools the capacities and resources of Sydney’s four institutions. Rooted in mutual respect and collaborative openness, these partnerships has been roundly embraced by the curatorial team responsible for each of the compass events.
This is the first of four events to be staged at a state-of-the-art live streaming venue, Knox.live, at the Knox Street Bar in Chippendale. Representing the North of Sydney, with poets curated by Dr Michelle Hamadache, Department of Media, Communications, Creative Arts, Literature and Language, Macquarie University.
Ambitious in scope, engaging in diverse media poetry from performance, video poetry and animation. The events in equal parts will stage provocative and playful work that challenges and emotionally resonates.
Each event will be held live at Knox.live and also live-streamed simultaneously. Poetry pod-parties are encouraged to tune-in and share-in the live-stream across the country and internationally.
This project would not exist without the poets. Above all we wish to acknowledge and commend all participating, who have championed the opportunity to showcase their work with rigor and ingenuity.
