Stand Up for Diversity

An evening of three-minute mini-talks and short soap-box shout-outs that put a spotlight on diversity, writing, words and storytelling.

Hosted in partnership with Essex Cultural Diversity Project, for this event we are teaming up with Metal and Essex Writers House in Southend-on-Sea, bringing together people who want to champion and celebrate diversity in the arts and in our communities, share the work they do with others, and collectively celebrate strong diverse voices. All welcome.

Wednesday 12 June, 7.00pm

Venue: Metal, Chalkwell Hall, Chalkwell Park, Southend, SS0 8NB
Tickets: Free, booking recommended

Part of Essex Writers House – This June, Metal Southend will become a house for writers to read, to write overlooking the Thames Estuary, to get help and feedback on your work or to have lively, meandering conversations with other writers.
