About this event
What are the stories we tell about ourselves? Who has permission to write them? What does it mean to recover forgotten histories from historically marginalised perspectives? Come to Ashton Court Mansion for an evening of spoken word, theatre and poetry exploring these ideas. There will be performances by acclaimed Bristol artists Saili Katebe, Tom Marshman and Asmaa Jama, followed by a discussion and Q&A, hosted by writer and participatory artist Jack Young.
Free transport to and from the event is available: please identify on booking form whether you require this and where you will be coming from.
This event is Pay What You Can, with a suggested donation of £5 to cover our costs, although no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please message Bristol Ideas via Eventbrite or [email protected] if you would like to come but don't have the funds.
Only one ticket can be booked per transaction. If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again.
Brought to you by Artspace Lifespace, Bristol Ideas, Acta Theatre and Bristol Pride Community Fund.
This is the first event in a new programme called 'Haunting Ashton Court', taking part throughout Autumn/Winter 2022 at Ashton Court, in association with Acta Theatre, Artspace Lifespace and Bristol Ideas and made possible through generous funding from Arts Council Project Grants and Bristol Pride Community Fund.
At the beginning of 2023, there will be a public performance exploring lost and silenced working-class histories of Ashton Court through theatre and historical fiction, devised by young people with a connection to South Bristol. Please follow Bristol Ideas, Acta Theatre and Artspace Lifespace for more information.
