I am performing poems at Birkenstock on Sunday

Today and tonight, we're having a mini-festival to celebrate the artistic achievements of women*. We're starting at 4pm with an open mic sesh for any women or women-identifying people to come and play. Dain't matter if you're playing a cello or a kazoo, if you're performing poetry or reading a short story because WE WANT YOU!

We'll be exhibiting women's art throughout Gwdihw, some of which has been commissioned especially for this event. It's going to be splendid :)

There'll be lots of music and some superb performance poetry by some award-winning published authors.

So far we've got:

Miss Maud's Folly - gypsy folktale jazz
Esther - folk-soul
Little Eris - electro/lo-fi
Cosmo - Anarchist cheeky-boy-punk
Miacca - folk-reggae

Performing poets:
Mab Jones
Susie Wild
Rhian Edwards

Exhibiting artists:
Rachel Coral
Lucy Baker
Elen Mai-Wyn Jones
Naomi Calvert

Please come along... it's free entry but we're going to pass a hat around on the day/night and all the pennies will be going toward Cardiff Feminist Network so that they can keeping doing their amazing work.

We look forward to seeing each and every one of you :)

* and our token man-feminist friend and legend, Cosmo.
