Common Ground


Common Ground is a spoken word poetry workshop that brings young people from diverse backgrounds together to explore and express their identity through the art of poetry, to find the stories that bind us together.

Using a skills development approach pioneered by Multicultural Arts Victoria, CAN partnered with MAV to run a pilot of Common Ground in Perth.

With support from Propel Youth Arts, the State Theatre Centre of WA and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, CAN delivered the intensive workshop in October 2017, culminating in a showcase performance.

Under the expert guidance of renowned poet and performance artists Abdul Hammoud and Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, five young emerging artists captivated the audience with their powerful works.
