Slam Poet and Safe(r) Spacer

Tilke Wouters is an activist slam poet and talks about themes as gender, sexuality, mental health and the broken system. She lets personal situations inspire her and dreams about how we can improve individually and as a society. Slam poetry and spoken word are her medium to share insights and open people’s minds. In 2018 she started her own poetry organization Slam-T with a friend. Besides her performances, Tilke is busy in many other projects like the Safe(r) Space Manifesto she wrote and her journey of making the world more inclusive. She participates in projects as Cut To Gent, IDAHOT, KnowHate, Queer Space, Festival of Equality and is also co-organisator of the Queer Pride.

  • Today was a first. The first time I’ve been asked to perform in such a fancy location. First time I wrote a piece for a specific occasion, a piece about the 5 amazing selected films of @cuttogent. I definitely stepped out of my comfortzone for this one. After all this time I still forget that people actually like what I do, that people want to hear my words. I still feel myself growing everyday and today shows that I want to invest in that. So hey, if you have a project coming up: let’s chat. .

  • I’m very expressive with my hands it seems. 
It was a pleasure with Slam-T x Queer Space; presenting with the amazing @kika.vr and performing new work.

  • IDAHOT: because protest is still necessary and I want to speak up against homophobia and every other kind of discrimination.

  • @slamthetea was zoals altijd weer magisch. Ik werd met woorden in mijn hart geslagen en op dezelfde manier weer verzoend. Een rollercoaster van letters. Maar wauw, ik zou het niet anders willen.
