A night of poetry in aid of SE local food banks - to share inspiration, words and seeds of new ideas.

About

The second iteration of the lazy susans’ nights of mutual offerings in aid of the cost of living crisis in South East London. All we ask of you is to ‘bring some’ make a donation or bring some words that have inspired you to ‘get seeds free’ from our poets and spoken words artists. An evening of performance, exchange and giving, we bring you the spring seasonal special from the lazy susans. We invite you to counter everything your parents taught you and give, to receive (seed potatoes & poetry!).

 

Tickets are pay what you can with 50% profits going to the artists and 50% to local food bank, Spring Community Hub. A limited number of open mic slots are available for free, encouraging you to share your words and inspiration in exchange for a night of mutual offerings. 


Staffordshire St presents The Store, an exhibition and collaborative programme of events centred around the story of a potato store in Norfolk. Curated by Kaia Goodenough, The Store is a response to Tilly Wace’s interdisciplinary film and research project. Together they present an exhibition of film, photography and creative writing that, through live activations, becomes a metaphor for a source of energy. Questioning the multiplicity of dark spaces, embodiment, tangent thought and collective movement. 

Our poetry night in aid of local foodbanks feeds back to the community, allowing the shoots and exposures of the store to stretch further and wider afield. Poetry and creative writing are integral in both Kaia and Tilly’s practices, they will share the writing that has informed their work alongside open-mic and a programme of poets and spoken word artists who have been invited to share current work as well as work that has inspired their practices. Re-tracing the roots of their words.
