Poetry is everywhere. It’s the lyrics of the song that’s stuck in your head, the rhythms of speech in an overheard conversation, the way we tell our stories, the histories of the buildings around us. That’s what Push The Boat Out is all about. Words, how we use them, and what they mean to us.
From poetry readings and discussions, to new commissions, singer-songwriter circles, music hybrid events, dance and hip hop, poetic cocktail-making classes, film screenings, beach walks, panels, workshops and development opportunities – this vibrant, multi-layered, polyphonic line-up is a true fiesta of the vernacular with something for everyone and anyone.
