Poet: brother portrait

brother portrait is a writer and artist of Sierra Leonean descent - his words falling into form in poetry, prose, travel writing and music. He is a believer in the importance of cultural production, expression and archiving.

Of writing to find and see oneself.

Reading, questioning, talking and listening to fill in blanks. Mining personal and community memories to form a full and puzzling picture, presenting the range and diversity in our collective experience. 

Poet: Larria 

Larria is a Mombasa-born Congolese-Ugandan poet. She verbalizes and visualizes unrecognized emotions and unnamed incidents, letting you in on the cerebral whirlwind of a diasporic mind. Instead of trauma bombing or bonding, her poetic practice attempts holistic connection and community healing. Larria encourages us to transcend and let go of the outer world in order to make room for an understanding within.

She has performed as a Vortex artist on the legendary 'Poetry Meets' stage, immersing the audience into her fascinating lyrical realm. Her poems are uplifting, serene and transcend honest tribulations of living spheres.
