A message from the event organisers:

We’re of course devastated to have to cancel the June 6th edition of Better Off Said. 

Along with all of Melbourne/Naarm in this latest iteration of lockdowns due to Covid-19, we are finding ways to be fluid and are continuing plans to connect hearts and minds through live art and spoken word.  With that in mind, we’d like to offer all ticket-holders for June 6th the opportunity to transfer their ticket to the new date.  Our aspiration is to present the same lineup as June 6th, availabilities pending.  Of course if you’d prefer a refund we completely understand. 

Thanks so much for your support.  Our hearts go out to all our fellow artists and performers who are struggling at this time. We love you and we’ll see you soon.

Marieke and Emilie. x

*************************

From members of the team behind international literary phenomenon Women of Letters comes a new 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.

On the afternoon of the first Sunday of each month, four guests will speak to the phrase "What I wish I’d said", and a special guest will deliver a Living Eulogy, to someone or some thing, to celebrate the best in our lives while we're all still hear to hear it. There'll also be a musical performance to help make each salon special.

Presented by Emilie Zoey Baker and Marieke Hardy.

Guest speakers confirmed for Sunday 6th June:

SENATOR LIDIA THORPE

DENISE SCOTT

JANELLE DA SILVA

SAMUEL JOHNSON

N’FA JONES

Musical performance: MAMA ALTO
