Description


''Until the lion has its own historian, tales of hunting will always be of the hunter''
- African Proverb
... So we're gonna eat the hunter and digest our own histories.

It's an extra special Herstory this time round so come through!

A night of poetry, music and storytelling exploring the themes of historic stories of the under represented diaspora.

Explore history, herstory and our stories through art, conversation and all the vibes. Allens Chakra Juice & Ital will be on sale.
Hosted by Alima Rico-Emmanuel
