Dagogo Hart is a Dublin based poet, writer and spoken word artist whose words have wowed audiences from bar basements to electric picnic stages.
He started performing in Dublin in 2016 in open mics and poetry slams, which saw him win the Slam Sunday grand slam in 2017 and become an All Ireland poetry slam finalist in the same year. Since then he has performed for festivals like Electric Picnic, St. Patricks, Dublin Fringe, Drogheda literary festival, Cuirt International Poetry Festival, and First fortnight.
He is one-third of the collective WeAreGriot, a poetry collective that curates art events around poetry.
His personal works include: RedBeard Paddy (a poetry short film), See True (a spoken word variety show) and Boy Child (a spoken-word play), the last two co-written with FeliSpeaks, Talkatives: a hip-hop and poetry slam as part of WeAreGriot.
His poetry is inspired by his hometown in Lagos, Nigeria, and his experience since moving to Ireland.
