Event #25: Tears and Dreams from Helenvale
August 24 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm| R60
Tears and Dreams from Helenvale – The Helenvale Poets (Bilingual)
The Helenvale Poets are a poetry group, of all ages, from the strife-torn Helenvale community in Port Elizabeth. They have emerged from this challenged socio-economic environment, meeting weekly to write poems about their lives and experiences. The Bay Creative Writing Development Project, under the auspices of the NPO Southern Africa Development, Research and Training Institute, has run the project for 8 years, and 7 collections of poetry have emanated from the group activities. Their readings speak about their dreams amidst the dangers of their lives.
