Silver Tongues

Date: Wednesday, Jan 29
Time: 6:30pm
Venue: Cafe Kino
Price: By Donation

Hydra Bookshop’s Silver Tongues was established as an open mic night that particularly values voices which might be talked over elsewhere. The Hydra safer spaces policy applies to this event.

“Silver Tongues is an open mic night that seeks to hear from voices that otherwise might not be heard. All are welcome and encouraged to attend, however the stage is reserved for those voices that are not given space in the mainstream of our culture as a matter of course. Our emphasis is on giving space for expression to those for whom such spaces are not prevalent. For example, but not limited to, trans people, women, people of colour, and others.

“You can sign up on the night, just speak to a volunteer at the counter. We’ll be open from 6:30 PM, performances will start at 7 PM. There’s no entrance fee but donations are welcome. Unfortunately the downstairs area of Kino where we’re currently based has stepped access, and we’re genuinely sorry if this prevents you attending – We hope we can find a new, accessible home soon.”
