Spoken Word at Bar Oussou is a popular fortnightly open mic event that has been running in Brunswick for several years. It is a warm and welcome venue for this event convened by Hamish Danks Brown aka Danksta Downunder. Emerging and established poets and performers as well as first-timers and newcomers will find an appreciative and supportive audience here for their 5-minute time on stage. All languages are welcome, even if there are made up there and then. All forms and styles of poetry and spoken word are performed. There is no censorship, and trigger warnings are optional at the discretion of each performer, however this event is not a platform for any unkindness to others. As per the unusual, nobody knows what will happen on the night yet it will definitely happen in very surprising ways and means.
Open mic: just stick your hand up! Host picks poets on the spot.
