Amateurs of Slam end Poetry came together to share an evening of rimes and self-expression. The audience got to appreciate performances in English, but as well some in French, Italian and Wolof (Senegal), recited by David “Darkie” Williams, Maxwell Francis (Tajoe), Daryl Williams, Adrian Wright, Gerelyn John and many others, including the director of Alliance Française Vanessa Demirciyan, who shared a few poems written by her mother – first person to be declared in France as a poet by profession.

Demirciyan also encouraged writers and artists’ associations to initiate more partnerships with the Alliance Française to promote and allow for free flow of their creativity.

For those who missed it, the organisers say don’t worry, Slam and Poetry night might become a regular event.
