Event description
A Hong Kong book launch raising funds for local mental health charity, Mind HK.

About this event

Please Stand Back From The Platform Door, the debut poetry collection from writer and spoken word performer Vishal Nanda, is launching at Peel Steet Poetry on December 8th 2021. The book is the winner of a Proverse Publication Prize 2020 and published with support from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.

The collection explores the pressures of life in Hong Kong, grappling with experiences of mental health and questions of identity.

Hosted at Social Room in collaboration with Peel Street Poetry and Mind HK, the night will feature a variety of readings from the new collection, along with performances from seasoned Peel Street poets. Enjoy 2-for-1 drinks until 9pm, and an open mic after the launch.

Ticket price includes a copy of the poetry collection, and 100% of the ticket and book sales will go to MindHK, to support their work raising awareness and providing resources for mental health in Hong Kong.

Please join and support arts and mental health in Hong Kong. See you there!
