The Power of ‘Poetry’ - in Action

Poetry has the unique ability to capture complex emotions, convey deep messages, and tell stories in a succinct and impactful way.

Poetry in Action recognised this challenge and in 2006, co-founders Hazem Shammas and Bryce Youngman (current CEO and Artistic Director – pictured right) took poetry off the dusty shelves of libraries and brought it to life on the stages of Australian schools.

Since its humble beginnings, PIA has grown to be one of Australia’s premier touring theatre companies.
