Kia ara te ua. Keep your head up. Be proud! Takatāpui and MVPFAFF poets celebrate community, language and agency through the power of spoken word.

After the success of the first Auckland Pride Poetry Slam in 2023, spoken word poetry returns to the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki to celebrate the immense talent of Tangata Whenua and Tangata o le Moana wordsmiths!

This event is free to all and promises to be an afternoon of lyrical magic.

This event is part of the 2024 Auckland Pride Festival.
