The finalists of SPOKEN070
The corona lockdown demanded that the voices of the The Hague youth be heard (even more so than before). The ideal opportunity, then, for the Huis van Gedichten foundation to collaborate with Crossing Border, GUAP and The Hague Hiphop Centre (H3C) to organize spoken070, the ultimate spoken word competition for the youth in The Hague.
After several rounds of elimination, only Esra Yilmazer, Amara van der Elst and Kate Oram were left standing in the grand final, which took place during the uit festival. Amara emerged as the winner and secured herself a spot in the talent development programme Poetry Circle 070. All three grand finalists will perform their submissions one more time at Crossing Border. Come and enjoy these young artists’ talents.
Spoken070 is made possible in part by Gemeente Den Haag, fonds1818 and CultuurSchakel.
