Curated and hosted by Nokuthula Zuma, a Poetry Slam Competition is a magnificent opportunity for a selection of Durban’s local poets to showcase their work. Covering contemporary issues, these poets will go head-tohead in a three-round battle for the number one spot in the first ever SAWAF Slam Competition.

A regular feature in the SAWAF programme is the Open Mic Session MC’d by Bongani Mavuso, in which storytellers, authors and poets will share the stage and render their contributions to celebrate women from all walks of life, and the invaluable role they play in society.
