About this program

The Glasshouse is a space for spoken word artists, poets, sound makers, audio storytellers, emerging cultural leaders, thinkers, writers and anyone who celebrates story as a means of self-expression, self-representation and community-building.

Witness the growth and renewal of our stories and histories, and reflect on how our stories are told and who they’re told by.
