Thursday 10th March | 7:30pm | Pay What You Decide

Celebrate International Women’s Day with a sensational line up of poetry and spoken word performers – headlined by Kim Moore.

Kim will be sharing work from her new collection, All the Men I Never Married (Seren, 2021).

Kim’s pamphlet If We Could Speak Like Wolves was a winner in the 2011 Poetry Business Pamphlet Competition. Her first collection The Art of Falling (Seren 2015) won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. Her first non-fiction book What The Trumpet Taught Me will be published by Smith/Doorstop in March 2022.

She will be joined by writer and spoken word artist Simone Yasmin,

Simone is a Black writer, spoken word artist and vocal soul, born in Leeds. Simone writes about all things people leave unsaid and pulls no punches when it comes to unpacking racism, feminism and other humanitarian issues, in her blog ‘Ethereal Truth’. Simone Yasmin’s own experiences have helped to shape her work, though more recently she has worked to share the stories of those unable to voice their own. Her poetry emphasises her growth in working to take up all the space she needs, and Simone Yasmin hopes her poetry teaches others to be just as unapologetic as she is learning to be. Simone’s poetry has been featured in publications such as Unicef’s Words By and the BALTIC’s S.P.A.M. Spreads. Simone also runs ‘Storytellers’, an event inviting creatives to an inclusive and safe space, to gain feedback, confidence and trial new ideas.

We have a limited number of 5-minute Open Mic slots available for women who would like to share their work. If you would like a slot, please email a.corwin@kalasangam.org

(Our next Poetry Night in May, will have slots available for everyone)

In partnership with Spoke Poetry Hub 

Thursday 10th March | 7:30pm | Pay What You Decide

All our events are Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the event. We want to encourage more people to come and see events at Kala Sangam, more often.

Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for an event in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the event. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the event starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.

If you have ANY coronavirus symptoms, please DO NOT attend.

Temperature checks, hand sanitisation and mask wearing will be encouraged where appropriate.
