Poetic Thursday Nights contribute significantly to Soweto’s cultural scene by showcasing artists from all over the country and all walks of life. It has unearthed a new breed of writers/poets that are essential to carrying the proverbial baton and paving the way for the next era of artists in this part of the world.
On the 27th of July 2017, Poetic Thursday Nights will celebrate their fourth birthday making a return to the prestigious Soweto Theatre whom they recently partnered with. The partnership will have Poetic Thursday Nights taking place exclusively at Soweto Theatre on the last Thursday of every month.
