Common Ground


Common Ground

Providing a safe, inclusive environment for young people from diverse backgrounds to explore and express their identity through the art of spoken word poetry, Common Ground led by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, was brought to life in Perth by CAN working in partnership with Multicultural Arts Victoria.

A platform for the voices of young people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds, Common Ground is a multilingual, multifaith project that uses spoken word poetry to build connection, confidence and understanding. A series of artist-led workshops enabled participants to learn poetry and performance techniques while exploring contemporary issues and shared personal stories, leading to a showcase of powerful spoken word poetry performances in Perth.
