The annual Nimbin Performance Poetry World Cup is a community sponsored event that each year grows in popularity, not only with the performers but the audience who attend. Performers travel from all over Australia to be part of this gruelling poetry marathon.
Poets have eight minutes to perform one or more original poems throughout the weekend. Heats are run on the Saturday with poets vying for a position in the semi-finals, which are run on Sunday.
The Grand Final of the Nimbin Performance Poetry World Cup is held on Sunday evening at the Nimbin School of Arts. Heats are held all day Saturday, semi-finals kick off from 12noon on Sunday and the Grand Final of eight poets starts in the School of Arts Hall from 7.30pm.
