The Kerouac Effect is an annual celebration of everything Beat held close to the date of the birth of the one of the most influential beat poets, Jack Kerouac’s birthday.

Jack Kerouac was among the first - perhaps the first - who coined the phrase 'the beat generation', source of the word 'beatnik'. The 'Beats' rebelled against the conformity of 1950s society and valued artistic and personal freedom of expression.

Every year as a celebration of that spirit of personal expression of freedom The Kerouac Effect gathers together some of Auckland’s finest performance poets and musicians for a night of poetry, music and… everything Beat.
