Warsan performance well-received

On Wednesday, 25 November 2009, well-known Somalian poet Warsan Shire gave a free live performance at the Scalabrini Centre. The event was well-attended by refugee clients of the Centre as well as guests from the community. The audience greatly enjoyed Warsan’s performance.

A few refugees expressed the opinion that while Warsan’s poems offered useful commentary on social issues, they would have liked for her to include the political arena in her poetry as well.
