Harbour @ The Guild provides a supportive space for women writers to present their poetry, prose and experiments with words in an intimate setting. The night is held monthly at the Artists Guild Studio, a cosy workshop and co-creating space nestled among galleries in Footscray’s vibrant Trocadero Art Space. Numbers are limited to just eight people.
The night begins with a surprise writing prompt and twenty minutes of writing. Who knows, you may even write something you feel like hopping up and sharing! Then it’s your chance to take the floor. First timers encouraged. Tea, coffee and biscuits included in ticket price. Curated by The Artists Guild, a peer mentoring hub for female-identifying artists.
Note to performers: The nights are themed, however you are welcome to ignore the theme and choose your own adventure if you prefer. Whatever the subject, Harbour @ The Guild would love to hear your voice. The theme for this inaugural event is “Harbour.”
The June Edition of a monthly spoken word event. At these events, Magic Steven performs a spoken word set about whatever has happened in the past month.
Special Guests this month: Emma Russack + DJ Nigel (HTRK)
Note: This will be our final monthly night for a while, as we will be taking a hiatus before returning in a new venue.
