London Irish Centre Tues 18th: The Broken Spiral Do Come!
Londoners, if you’re at a loose end on Tuesday the 18th, come along to this. Literary activism and art as a space for healing at the London Irish Centre with award-winning and best-selling authors Mia Gallagher, Lisa Harding and Sam Blake. If you’re not at a loose end – clear your schedule!
The Broken Spiral
In the wake of the #MeToo movement and the Belfast Rape Trial, anger and betrayal rippled through a very large area of Irish society who recognise there is a deep injustice at work in this country, and want to see that change.
The Broken Spiral was created for this purpose, to enact social change at the fundamental level of our belief systems, as well as to raise funds to support the work of the Dublin Rape Crisis centre, who tackle fundamental belief systems both personal and systemic across Ireland every day.
This event will discuss literary activism, as well as literature as a healing art form.
Chaired by editor, R.M. Clarke, and featuring a panel of The Broken Spiral authors, Mia Gallagher, Lisa Harding and Sam Blake, this event will feature readings from the anthology and discussion about what drew them to getting involved in the project, as well as the impact of the related current events upon them and their writing.
This event needs support – please spread the word and come along if you can!
Location: London Irish Centre, 50-52 Camden Square, London, NW1 9XB
