A collaboration night between Feminist Fusion and WonderZoo - celebrating Feminist Fusion 3rd anniversary!!
The Fusion started in February 2014. Since then it's been a powerful journey of connections, community, creativity and inspirational insights about gender, art and social justice. WonderZoo came out of Blackbooks and The Words projects and it has been around Plymouth sparking the passion for literature with a humour and non-censorship spirit.
Come along to our celebration with fabulous artists, stimulating games and a celebration cake! This time at the beautifully eccentric Old Morgue :)
In this Session:
Performance poet that can make you laugh with her risque and blue, self-deprecating poetry or poems that will pull on your heartstrings that are taboo such as Mental Health, Assisted Dying and the loss of a close friend. She is married and lives in Torbay.
Feminist, witch, comedian, multiple poetry slam winner including Glastonbury Festival Slam 2017. She is the current Grand Bard of Exeter (2012-2019), lead singer and lyricist with psychedelic rock band The Invisible Opera Company of Tibet. Entertaining, hilarious, and always packs a punch.
Hanna is a poet who won the Cheltenham Compound competition with Gram Joel Davies in 2015 and has also Co-hosted the Exeter Uncut readings with Alasdair Paterson. She has published her work in many magazines and newspapers including Prole, Domestic Cherry and Ink and Sweat and Tears. She has appeared at both the Cheltenham and Swindon poetry festivals.
French poet and author who has lived in Plymouth since 2001. Her work has been published in the UK, the US and France. She writes in both French and English but her poems are so different in their intent and use of language that she claims it’s like having a double life. Mélisande finds it fascinating to write in a language that is not here own.
Plus Talk and Games: “Solidarity is Our Weapon” - “Me too”, “Ni Una Más”, “50 Million Missing”, “Reclaim The Night” - why are campaigns addressing objectification and violence against women around the world on the rise?
There will be drinks available to purchase at The Old Morgue bar.
