The original custodians of the Yarra Valley, the Wurundjeri people, didn’t write. Their wisdom travelled through time in songs, stories and dance. We acknowledge this land’s indigenous ancestors and elders, oral historians of the dream-time. This poetry gathering sits on the shoulders of countless generations of wisdom keepers and spoken-word story tellers.
Welcome to our Yarra Valley Spoken Word Community.
We meet at The Dreaming Space Academy at Yarra Valley ECOSS, Wesburn on the second Friday of the month and welcome you to join us and share your musings.
Ours is a space to share the power of the spoken word, be inspired by our community of artists and learn to write and share life’s depths through this life changing art form.
Families are welcome until after supper, we have a feature artist each month and then Open Mic.
Entry $10 Concession, $15 Full, Children Free.
Please bring a vegetarian plate to share; Entry includes Supper of Dahl, Rice, Hummus & Corn Chips.

Hello Fellow Poetry Lover,
This month we warmly welcome Antonia Green as our Feature Poet for November 2023.
Antonia uses poetry as a journey for sacred medicine. It has the ability to remind and reconnect you to your deep emotions, soul journeys and your relationship with your innate nature; the roles you fulfill in your experience, perception and expectation of life.
Oftentimes the poems lead through the terrain of snags and dark eddies to a place of free flow, strength and surrender.
There is a prayer embedded with the process that the poems can continue to give something of the medicine in which they were forged or gathered and that their meaning and significance can bend into many reflections.
Please join us as we explore her chosen theme of reconnecting to your soul journey through the medicine of poetry, and you share your own themes during our open mike session after supper.
See the Flyer for times and the format; bring a plate to share if you wish!
PS We are looking for someone who would be able to bring Chai for after supper; do you have capacity to make 4 litres of soy chai? If so, please let us know; you will be reimbursed for ingredients and we will be grateful!
