Firsts are always incredible. So, the first time, Olivia Gatwood, fan favorite and inspiration to many, comes down to Bangalore as a part of her nationwide Spoken Word Poetry tour, witnessing magic unfold should come naturally to you.
If you are a Spoken Word Poetry enthusiast, you already know why you should be hyperventilating and booking your tickets without reading further, but if you are not sold, we have a Muggle-version of the event as well – Other than her, this event promises a roster of brilliance from artists of the city, ranging from spoken word, musical storytelling to visual storytelling. This event would set brand-new precedents, in terms of a poetry experience like no other.
This event is brought to you by A Writer’s Haven, a literary platform, based in both Pune and Bangalore for encouraging the spread of writing and performance arts among the youth.
