If poetry is expression, spoken word poetry events are havens for self expression. It becomes imperative therefore, especially in lieu of sexual harassment allegations uncovered against certain poets, to contribute tangibly to the cause of greater gender sensitivity.
Renowned poetry collective called Slip of Tongue, in association with UN empowered NGO Sayfty, is organising a fundraiser slam poetry event at Antisocial, Hauz Khas on 18th February towards the cause of sexual and gender based abuse. Go spend your Sunday evening listening to poets and musicians (entry is free!). You can also donate to the NGO at the event, and get a custom Slip of Tongue designed postcard in return. If you are a poet or musician, you can register here to perform: https://docs.google.
