The Bunker: Spoken Word Masterclass

The Bunker: Spoken Word Masterclass

The Bunker Collective showcases the best local and global spoken word talent, taking the stage to have their say and share stories spanning the personal and political through powerful lyrical flow. 

This intimate workshop is open to all wordsmiths and performers, offering the unique opportunity to master their craft and learn from 2018 Australian Poetry Slam Champion, Melanie Mununggurr-Williams.

Australian Poetry Slam Champion, Melanie Mununggurr-Willams will guide you through the tough times, the joys and the big changes; asking you to explore emotion through your senses. Craft poems, stories, monologues and messages with power as Melanie challenges your writing techniques and pushing your abstract concepts into concrete imagery.

When it comes to performing your words, explore spoken word beyond slam. Melanie will provoke a discussion on mixing your writing with music, images, movement and more.

The Bunker Series is a collaboration between Peripheral Arts and Writers Republic, who will again be hosting a signature series of events including workshop opportunities, competitive heats and guest performances all leading up to The Bunker Grand Final to be held on Sat 31 Aug at The Imperial Hotel, Eumundi.  


The Bunker Spoken Word is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Sunshine Coast Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
