TUES 31ST MARCH @ TWITCH.TV | POETIC SOUL QUEEN | OPEN MIC
Mind Over Matter: Digital Launch
We’re very happy to announce the launch of our free live streaming events with the first one happening this Tuesday, 31st March at 8pm!
During these uncertain times we want to continue providing the familiar, safe space you’ve come to know at the physical events.
There will be a lot of isolation in the coming weeks and months, which as we all know is necessary to get us through this period. However, we are still able to connect online, share our experiences, advice, create and come together to discuss the difficult realities of the current cimate and the effect on our mental health, through our chosen art forms.
This is also an opportunity for us to connect globally with artists we wouldn’t usually have the chance to see perform! All the information is below. free
