    Celebrating the Spoken Word community in HK

    About the festival

    The Hong Kong Spoken Word Festival was founded in 2018 and is an annual event designed to celebrate and promote Hong Kong community based groups that feature an element of spoken word.


    We aim to foster an appreciation for a variety of artistic practices and performers, celebrating diverse and creative communities in this fast-paced city.


    Organisations who joined the Spoken Word Festival in past years include: Hong Kong Stories, Aurora Theatre, Hong Kong Writers Circle, Hong Komedy Guerrilla, HK Improv, HK Comedy, HK Confidential, #Impact, Better in Bed, Women in Publishing, Liars' League, Peel Street Poetry, Comedy HK, Spill Stories, Talking Mental and Sassy Speaks


    HKSWF is a performance-based community arts organisation.


    Ticketing is available through Ticketflap.
