This August is a VERY in your face ouTsideRs in collaboration with the QLD Poetry Festival 2005 & Creative Noosa

we are presenting THREE amazing feature guests.

The main guest is  Canada's Haitian born World Slam champion goddess

ONI the Haitian Sensation

Oni is one earthy sister who brandishes her tongue and talent as a seductive, razor-sharp singer & poet. She performed in the Vagina monologues in 2002-03 & Funkadelic has commissioned her to write a song entitled "Cyber-Cherry." The reigning Step Up Slam champ has lit up stages worldwide and believes poetry is a way to empower, educate and entertain with opinions on subjects that are not always covered in the mainstream media. Recently, the CBC hired her to write a poem about AIDS which resulted in her being invited to Africa to perform this piece. Her performances have been described as "...a no-Bull Shit, straight-for-the-jugular way of touching the untouchable". On the night there will also  be esteemed Melbourne poet/writer & Director of the Overload festival Matt Hetherington and local emerging Sunshine Coast poet, Michael Beaumont- Connop.

Entry is free and there will still be a special open mic where people can perform their experimental work backed by local underground soundscape DJ, Nefarius - who will be launching his new mix album "solsistere" on the night.

The event will be hosted Thursday 25th August 6-9pm at Alfresco cafe <http://www.outsiders.ws/map_to_outsiders.htm>  with the GHostboy holding the reins. There will also be special prizes as judged by our guest poets, live visual artists and music from the Alfresco house band, Bootleg

It is THE space where people can let go & be dangerous with words..don't miss this one!
