    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.


    HKSWF is a performance-based community arts organisation.
