A Mic Of One’s Own – Icons (ENG)

A new edition of A Mic of One’s Own, a series of collaborations between Kunstinstituut Melly and The Writer’s Guide (to the Galaxy)!

For this International Women’s Day edition we’re putting the spotlight on (female) ICONS!

As always we are looking for writers, poets, spoken word artists or songwriters who want to share their thoughts about this theme. Which icon inspired you, changed your life or needs to be honoured, just for who they are? It can be anyone from Britney Spears to Emily Dickinson to that English teacher that encouraged you to keep writing.

Apply until February 23rd by filling out the application form here. Do you just want to come and listen? Get your free ticket here.

With these sessions we aim to create a safe space for intimate stories to be shared. To ensure that, we expect all participants to respect each other’s privacy and vulnerability.

Date: Friday March 8th 2024
Time: 19:00 (doors: 18:30)
Location: Kunstinstituut Melly, Witte de Withstraat 50 Rotterdam
