We hosted our first ever Queens of Poetry #TheSoireePicnic event on the 23rd September 2017 in the most picturesque spring setting at 13 Rhodes Avenue, Parktown West.
The Soiree aimed to celebrate women in poetry who are speaking out and changing society unapologetically through their powerful words and reflections. Hosted by Tshepang Khunou the day was a succesion of engaging entertainment. The afternoon consisted of exhilirating poetry performances by Motheo, Kat Upendi, Queen of Hearts, STY7ES and Ivan followed by musical performances by JESon, Mag SA, Mayhem KS, Prism Da Reason, S-Frequency and Iindirhe to close off with an Ode to the Queens.
In true Artizen style we aim to make every gathering a holistic art experience. To compliment our celebration of poetry, female artists Nthableleng added to the ambiance with her live painting, Brigid Schutz’ luminous artworks were all the buzz alongside Lalage Hunter’s unique ceramics display. Dijo Catering co and Panda Bear Frozen treats kept the audience refreshed throughout the day.
It was a first of many Soiree’s to come and a beautiful memorable eventful day.
