Poetry, Singing, Drumming, Pan and Dialogue

There are many people in this country simply bursting with talent and ideas, but with very few places to express it in a comfortable space. The Moonlight Gathering was created to be a free flowing, relaxed forum for creative expression in its various manifestations.

In the mainstream, culture usually translates into mere entertainment, however this gathering aims to expose people to a deeper understanding of culture. Related to this is participants accessing broader perspectives that are so absent in the mainstream media and education system. In this context the gathering has an African/grassroots orientation, though it is open to all persons. Those that are interested in sharing their work should come prepared to do so.
