Event description

Description

Focused on women's experiences but open to everyone of all ages and abilities, spoken word poet Leah Thorn will give an exciting presentation about the project 'Older Women Rock!' that has recently operated in Newcastle Under Lyme. There will also be an opportunity to contribute to the creation of a group poem.

‘Older Women Rock!’ is an initiative creating pop-up political art spaces to raise awareness and explore issues facing women in early old age [late 50s to early 70s]. Through poetry, performance, retro clothes and film, the project celebrates older women 50+, unites us across differences, challenges our invisibility and subverts society's assumptions and prejudices about us.
