Better Off Said - 2023 Season Finale
DOORS 5PM // KITCHEN OPEN // SHOW STARTS 5.30PM
From members of the team behind international literary phenomenon Women of Letters comes a spoken-word art salon celebrating words, stories, and human experiences.
Better Off Said: Eulogies for the Living and Dead is afternoon of words it’s time to air. Is there something you always wish you’d shouted aloud, someone still out there in the world waiting to hear an important message, a piece of history you feel your voice could have improved? Now is the opportunity to leave no verbal stone unturned. To find your closure. To sing your truth from the rooftops before it’s too late.
Presented by Emilie Zoey Baker and Marieke Hardy.
