LIVE POETS SOCIETY (article first published : 2007-03-11)

The next Live Poets’ Society will take on a different format.

Art for Humanity has launched an art and poetry campaign to help remedy the epidemic of violence and abuse against women and children. The organisation invited eminent women artists and poets to collaborate in works incorporating each of their disciplines.

The result is 21 emotive billboards erected throughout South Africa. Strategically located for maximum impact, the verse and visuals are designed to capture the hearts and minds of all our citizens.

Award-winning poet Marí Peté is a prime mover in the project. As well as composing one of the poems in the collection, she has mounted an evocative multimedia production incorporating the works. This will be presented at the next gathering of the Live Poets’ Society (LiPS).

Taking a cue from the campaign, the evening’s theme is “Humanity”. After the main event, those with poems that address this moving topic are invited to present them. Then in the Poet Pourri session, poems on any subject may be aired.

The Live Poets Society meeting takes place on March 27 at 18h00 at the Point Yacht Club. Entry is free and all are welcome, regardless of whether they are artists or poets. As there is no booking, seats are on a first-come basis. There is a cash bar, and guarded parking at R5 is available. For more details contact Marí Peté on 083 296 9433 or Brett Beiles on 031 266 4762.
