Our Future Selves brings together Daisy (Disability Arts in Surrey) and DAO (Disability Arts Online) with Surrey Libraries to deliver a series of spoken word events across Surrey in Autumn 2017.
There will be free public spoken word performances by DAO artists at each of the Surrey libraries listed below, with open mic slots available for budding performers.
DAO poets performing in an afternoon event MC-ed by Colin Hambrook will be ACE funded and Best of Black-British Writing published Lynne E Blackwood and MIND book of the year winner John O’Donoghue.
Throughout the day the public will be able to engage with installations created by Arts Matters and The Grange.
The spoken word readings are open to the public and no booking is necessary. We look forward to seeing you there!
