Cottonmouth meets Amnesty for ARTillery Spoken Word, November 26 @ The Astor

Comments (0)

You remember how we said we weren't doing anything until next year? That was almost completely the truth. This one was just too exciting to pass up.

We've teamed up with Amnesty to put on a mother of a show for their ARTillery Youth Arts Festival, bringing you an evening brimming with narrative art on Thursday November 26 at the Astor Lounge, 659 Beaufort St, Mt Lawley.

Performers on the night will use their own unique craft to respond to the theme: demand dignity. Poets will consider, debators will contend, storytellers will weave, mc's will wax lyrical, songwriters will play and activists will proclaim.

Audience members should bring their best typing fingers as our largest typewriter wall to date will await your opinions.

Open mic hopefuls who would like to "Demand Dignity" should come down to register between 7pm and 8pm.

Our spectacular line-up for the evening will include:
