The Audacious Women Festival kicks off in style with a showcase of some incredible female storytelling and spoken word artists, all bringing their own spirit, energy and passion to the stage

Jan Bee Brown & Maria MacDonell : Daring Dames Do!
Roll up ! Roll up!  Be entertained, amused and amazed. Fly high and dive deep as Jan Bee Brown and Maria MacDonell cast the limelight on some ground-breaking, daring darlings of the stage. There’s audacity and adventure for all in this marvellous medley of thrilling herstoric stories.

Lily Asch : Medusa  Founder of the storytelling organisation Real Talk, Lily is passionate about amplifying the stories we all possess, while excavating tales from the past. She will be telling the story of Medusa, a classical Greek myth. Many of us know the image of a woman with snakes for hair and a stare that turns people to stone, but how did Medusa come to be? What parallels can we draw between her experience and our modern age? 

Erin May Kelly : Smallest Acts of Bravery
This is a celebration of women, and all the acts of courage we accomplish through our lives. Honouring the women who perform everyday acts of bravery and resilience, Erin will explore subjects such as leaving toxic relationships, helping survivors of abuse and the ways we can change the world bit by bit.

Imogen Stirling : Fired-Up Words for Furious Women​ 
Imogen Stirling is a poet and theatre-maker, recently listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award. Fluctuating between humour, celebration and despair, Imogen's writing will leave you inspired and outraged. Tonight she will share her poetry centred around what it means to be an audacious woman today.
