Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, Inua will tell his ridiculous, fantastic, poignant immigrant-story of escaping fundamentalist Islam, performing solo shows at the National Theatre, and drinking wine with the Queen of England, all the while without a country to belong to or place to call home.

Darwin Originals: What if? (Lemn Sissay)

POEM OF THE DAY #2 Each day until the festival we will share a poem by one of the incredible artists coming to this year's festival. Take a listen, enjoy, book your tickets and share the poems with anyone you think might enjoy it... What If - Lemn Sissay A lost number in the equation A simple, understandable miscalculation And what if on the basis of that The world as we know it changed its matter of fact Let me get it right. What if we got it wrong? What if we weakened ourselves getting strong? What if we found in the ground a file of proof? What if the foundations missed a vital truth? What if the industrial dream sold us out from within? What if our unpunishable defense sealed us in? What if our wanted more was making less? And what if all of this wasn’t progress?

Memories of year's gone by... Today someone new to Canterbury asked me 'so what is this Wise Words Festival, what is all the excitement about?' and I found it so hard to put into words. I promised instead to share a little film of some of the magical moments and beautiful things you have all said that describe the festival perfectly! #WiseWordsFest

Take a listen, enjoy, book your tickets and share the poems with anyone you think might enjoy it... "Beauty has always been a strange standard… how can we make uniform something that everyone has their own opinion of? The danger in allowing beauty to continue being a standard is that it then becomes the way we assign value to people. I wrote this piece as a way to speak to that" –Shane Tickets selling fast!
