(Spoken Word Poetry and Soul Music Event).
The idea behind the event is to use Poetry as an Art for entertainment, tool to increase literacy level, and as a means of communication, education and information.
Our goal is to create a Performance Poetry and Spoken Word industry where people can earn a decent living as Performance Poets. A Spoken Word Poetry industry will help reduce unemployment in the Country as awareness and sponsorship of the Art form increases.
This Art form would also improve the literacy level in Universities and Secondary Schools, and among the populace, as a good Poet needs to be able to read and write, and must also be intellectually sound to be able to pass the message inherent his/her poetry performances to the audience.
The maiden edition of WORD UP (Spoken Word Poetry and Soul Music Event) was held on August 18, 2012. It took place at the UNILAG Guest House Lecture Theatre, Akoka, Lagos, and it was a delightful success.
The next edition of our event, Word Up (a Spoken Word Poetry and Soul Music Event) is scheduled to take place on November 17, 2012 at the UNILAG Guest House Lecture Theatre, Akoka, Lagos.
