Season launch party with poetry, installations, and music

Join us at Free Word for the launch of Finding Power: a season exploring new possibilities for power and voice.

Experience a sneak peek of what to expect from this season, with dynamic live performances, poetry and music – as well as the unveiling of our commissioned installations.
