Talking Blue: Spoken Word at Blue Bar

Community Event

2 Feb 2022 to 8 Jun 2022 Fortnightly Event

A fortnightly open showcase of spoken word, poetry and all other language arts at Melbourne’s home of hip-hop, Ronnie’s Blue Bar.

During lockdowns, these events will be live-streamed. Check Vibe Union channels for further information.

Smooth talkers, slick walkers, gather round for a night of linguistic subtlety and sultry wordplay. Ronnie’s blue bar in collaboration with vibe union presents: Talking Blue; with the guidance of Vic state finalist poet Jason Voss, we’ll be taking a journey through words and experiences. Whether you’re an MC, poet, spoken word enthusiast, put words to the page but never performed, this stage is for you. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged.

Sign-ups through the website or on the night.

Each performer gets five minutes (roughly).

This event is taking place on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty was never ceded and we extend our respects to Indigenous elders past, present, and emerging.
