White Ribbon spoken word competition for young people on respectful relationships

August 23, 2019 at 12:50 PM

From the NZFVC

White Ribbon New Zealand is organising a spoken word competition for rangatahi (young people), with the theme of respectful relationships. It will explore young people's take on ending men’s violence in Aotearoa New Zealand.

White Ribbon NZ promotes respectful relationships to prevent men’s violence against women.

Performers must be students at a NZ secondary school (or equivalent) and 15 years or older. Poems must be the original work of the performer. Young people can perform individually or as a team. Poems are to be between 1-4 minutes (5 minutes maximum).

The deadline to apply to participate is 9 September 2019. Entry forms will be available on the White Ribbon website.

The Spoken Word competition will be held on 26 September 2019 at Wellington College.

For more information see the White Ribbon webpage on the spoken word competition.

Also see the 2016 White Ribbon New Zealand campaign that focused on respectful relationships.

The competition is part of White Ribbon’s Youth Ambassador Leadership Programme.

The White Ribbon movement works to eliminate men’s violence against women by encouraging men to take ownership of the issue and model positive behaviour to change attitudes and behaviour.
