Het Zwarte Schaap International Festival
A spoken word festival for all black sheep in this world
Curated by Daniëlle Zawadi, winner of the 2020 Unwanted Words BIPOC Voice Award as part of the 1st Queer & Feminist Awards. The spoken word platform Het Zwarte Schaap won the Audience Award 2020 of the Haagse C.
Het Zwarte Schaap (The Black Sheep) offers a platform to stories that are unheard and creates a safe environment for all who like to share their story – especially to those who feel like a black sheep. Founder Daniëlle Zawadi has curated a two day event of poetry and spoken word performances spoken in English; Het Zwarte Schaap International Festival. During this festival, (semi) professional poets will be taking the stage to create a unique festival full of inspiration and thought provoking ideas, transformed into spoken word performances.
On Saturday, we will air FOCUS, a series of word-videos of rap, poetry and many more forms of word art, including live performances of the portrayed artists. Watch the trailer below!
During the Open Call on Sunday, a Dutch Sign Language interpreter will be present the entire programme.
