Event

Radical Read-In with Eileen Myles and CAConrad

16 March 2019


Saturday 16 March
2.00 - 4.00pm

Poets Eileen Myles and CA Conrad invite you to bring reading materials and join them for all or a part of this collective silent reading experience. Lifting its concept from the feminist genderqueer artist collective LTTR, the read in proposes reading as an activist undertaking, bringing together a community of people through shared individual experience.

Free, drop-in.
