Spork! Mothers Who Make Special at Exeter Phoenix, Wed Feb 05 (13.00 – 14.30)
We’re loving the idea of this collaboration with purveyors of the spoken word Spork! Mothers Who Make and Exeter Phoenix. I can’t get along to it but if you can, you definitely should (and tell me all about it after, of course). Keep reading for more information…
I am convinced that everyone – and I mean everyone, regardless of gender or status – loses out when care and art are kept separate, in opposition to one another. The care becomes drudgery. The art becomes inaccessible.
– Matilda Leyser (Co-Artistic Director, Mothers Who Make)
Mothers Who Make is a grassroots international network dedicated to supporting mothers that hold the dual roles of mother and maker. They’re teaming up with local poetry night Spork! to host an exciting lunchtime poetry event at the Exeter Phoenix on Wednesday 5th February.
Headlined by the brilliant published poet, facilitator & former Bard of Exeter Liv Torc, with support from local poet and founder of Poetic License, Ysella Sims, this promises to be a magical afternoon. As well as the two featured artists, mother makers from around Devon will take to the stage in a mums-only open-mic that’s brimming with talent!
This will be a fun, informal event open to absolutely everyone. Entry is free. There’s just a suggested donation of £3 – 5. And, as with all MWM events, children and babies are welcome.
It is a relaxed performance, so feel free to come and go as you want. Pop along to the Phoenix on your lunchbreak and try out a sporkful of scrumptious mum-tious spoken-word.
