    Join us and Attenborough Arts Centre for this - our fifth WORD! Online and the finale instalment in our current series of virtual broadcasts.

    Mellow Baku - WORD! Associate artist and our Guest Curator for the last few months - will be joined by co-hosts, Ana Paz and Lydia Towsey.

    The event will feature the specially curated work of: Cathi Rae, Illeyana Nichols, Laura Grevel, Benjamin White, EG Harewood and Gail Webb.

    To end the year in style we'll also be presenting the last in our current Lockdown set of communal poems, with a whole new host of talented voices and a specially created and original score from the critally acclaimed, Mellow Baku.

    We've loved being with you this year - and look forward to many more (plus a few more releases before we're done with 2020!)
