Participant at Rising Voices program and a finalist of Auckland University Poetry Slam 2012.
Hala is a part of Decolonise crew, a four-piece spoken word collective, made up of Hala, Logan aka Non-Anomalous, Jahra and Vincent aka Queen.
DECOLONISE is about reclaiming consciousness into the conscience of Auckland.
In the West, consent is the most dominant form of control.
We consent by actively not being active; we participate in our own slavery.
The intersection of art and politics is the space that allows for a complete reclamation of human agency because the body, through performance poetry, is a source of political activity.
