virtual workshop and open mic
17th April 2021
We’re really excited to let you know the Foundation is holding its first event of 2021, which will be hosted virtually on Zoom.
This event is of course FREE and will begin with a writing workshop lead by writer and poet Kat Francois.
This will be followed by a 2-hour open mic! We are asking our performers to come and express yourselves around your thoughts and feelings about lockdown...and we want this to happen through whichever form of the arts best serves your creativity.
Feel free to join us for the full event or just the open mic following the workshop. To confirm your attendance just click the link below and press the register button on the event page
