Mother Tongue

Event Date: 9 August 2024 07:30 PM to 9 August 2024 10:00 PM
Author / Presenters: Jaime-lee Willoughby
Event Venue: The Coracle

This in one of our bi-monthly events with a Feature Artist and 8 open mic spots. Mother Tongue is a place for Passionate, Powerful, Vulnerable and Honest performance; it stands aside from most Spoken Word events in its depth and authenticity.

For those who don't know; Mother Tongue is an intimate, warm and cozy night of Women's Spoken Word (poetry, stories, songs, etc). It is a space to sit back and listen, receive, as well as step up and share a piece yourself via the open mic.

It is a place to witness Woman in all of her/their incredible and nuanced facets.

All genders are welcome in the audience.

Our open mic stage is open to Cis women, Trans Women, Non-binary and gender-fluid people who feel "woman" is an identity they share an experience with.

This venue is fully accessible.

Doors open 7:30pm Performance 8pm -10:30pm

All genders welcome ENTRY: $20 // CONC: $18// DIGITAL ATTENDANCE: Recommended Donation $10 or pay as you can and feel (eg $1, $5, $20)

Mother Tongue is run and organised on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung People of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge that this is stolen land, sovereignty was never ceded. This is, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
