Black Rhymes Aboriginal Poetry Night

Black Rhymes Aboriginal Poetry Night creates a space for Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, and Indigenous voices to come together and be heard.

Location: State Library of Victoria

Black Rhymes Aboriginal Poetry Night provides space for First Nations voices to speak their poetic and political truths, platforming poetry around Aboriginal mental health and healing. Hosted by Evelyn Araluen, Black Rhymes’ central collective of performers will appear with guest poets. 

Black Rhymes Aboriginal Poetry Night began in Redfern in 2016. Featuring local and visiting Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, and Indigenous talent, Black Rhymes aims to create a community space for poetry and empowerment.
