Catalyst Road Show 2, 3rd Woman Scream International Poetry Festival, 14th March
This is the first time New Zealand has been represented in this international celebration of women’s voices. We were proud to showcase a line-up of some of Christchurch's many talented emerging poets and musicians as one of more than 30 countries linking up for the festival throughout March. The all-women programme featured:
We donated $370 NZD from the door sales to Christchurch Women’s Refuge here in New Zealand in honour of the themes of Woman Scream. Christchurch Women's Refuge is an independent Canterbury-based charity which provides specialist family violence services to women and children living with and surviving family violence. We are very proud that we could make a donation and at the same time raise awareness to domestic violence issues. It was a great privilege to be able to participate in this worldwide event and to be able to honour women through such a worthy and noble cause.
