Say Owt Slam feat. Malaika Kegode

Sat Feb 5 @ 7.30 pm

Since 2014, Say Owt have been hosting raucous poetry slams where performers get 3 mins to wow an audience. They’ve become the mainstay of the York community. Whether you love the written (and spoken) word or are just curious, this high energy event features a host of poets each with a unique style. Highly Commended in the York Culture Awards, this will be Say Owt’s first slam for over two years and will prove to be a banging night out.

Featuring guest poet Malaika Kegode!

Malaika is a writer, performer and producer based in Bristol. She has appeared on stages at a number of festivals and literary events including WOMAD and Edinburgh Book Festival. She has published two poetry collections with Burning Eye Books, and recently created Outlier, an autobiographical gig-theatre with prog-rock band Jakabol.

She is passionate about writing on the themes of cinema, culture and race. Her work is inventive and lyrical, taking the audience on a journey through lives and loves exploring genre, form and the power of the written word made visual.
