Come join us at New Zealand's only regular online poetry event this Sunday for our much loved open mic, with poets performing from all over the world, and feature session! This time with a 20 minute set from US Poet - previously ranked 5th at the World Slam Finals - Wayne Henry!

Note: You can also watch on Facebook Live, but won’t be able to interact as much.

Also note: Your Place is an intentional safe, accessible space where hate speech and offensive language and images will not be tolerated - and will be immediately met with a ban from our moderators.

Raised in South Central Los Angeles, exposed to a melting pot of different cultures which allows for him to have a broad canvas for his work. Wayne Henry moved to Dallas TX in 2008 and has become a passionate poet who writes each line to watch it come alive through poetry.

Dedicated to bringing awareness to issue such as mental health, oppression, depression and concepts of spiritual growth.

Poet, teacher, father and P.O.C enthusiast. Passion with purpose pushes life to new heights.

Accolades include:
2019 Southwest Shootout Indie/Team Champ
2018 Ranked 5th at Individual World Slam Finals
2018 Black Art Film Festival Slam Champion
2018 Dallas Slam Member
2017 Dallas Grand Slam Champion
2017 Denton Arts Enclave Champion
2017 Texas Grand Slam Finalist
2016/2017/2018 Dallas Regional Slam Champion(Team)

As always, this event at Your Place is pay-what-you-can-afford, because finances should not be a barrier to art. HOWEVER if people do not honour that trust-system then this event becomes unsustainable and cannot continue so if you can afford it, please do – the money goes towards paying our artists and keeping this whole thing up and running

And if you cannot afford anything, still come along and enjoy the poetry with my blessing (though do please help us out by sharing the event and getting some other folks along – that’d be amazing!) – we believe in human kindness at Your Place, so hopefully someone who can afford it will pay a bit more and cover you.

Please check the Donations links above (see website section).

Love x
