New Cardiff Performance Event (LISTEN)

LLIISSTTEENN
(LISTEN)
 will be launched July 4 2019 at Gentileza

LAUNCH EVENT – (LISTEN) 1

WHAT IS (LISTEN)?

Each (LISTEN) event will offer featured performers a chance to deliver an extended set in the intimate surroundings of Gentileza. No microphones. Just a welcoming space for the performers to be heard by an audience that truly wants to listen

After each performance has been heard, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions. The Q&A will be overseen by event creator, organiser and host Steven Kenward, himself a musician, songwriter and performer.

As an appreciator of all kinds of performance, Steven formerly organised and hosted the open mic event WHAT YA GOT? This offered performers slots of up to ten minutes but (LISTEN) is not an open mic event.

Via (LISTEN) Steven hopes that the audience and the different featured performers at each event  will benefit from people being given more time to show more of what they are capable of.

Every (LISTEN) will be different from every other (LISTEN)

There is no entry fee. But you are free to show your appreciation on a donation basis, if what you hear moves, excites, amuses you or simply, for whatever reason, makes you feel glad you decided to drop by at Gentileza and lend your ears to (LISTEN).

MEGAVERSE (CARDIFF) Spoken Word Festival Event

bannermmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

       SPECIAL MENTION IN BEST LITERARY FESTIVAL EVENT CATEGORY
                    SABOTEUR AWARDS 2019 SHORTLISTING PROCESS

MEGAVERSE was born at the annual HUB FESTIVAL CARDIFF in August 2014, bringing performance poetry, page poetry reading, spoken and sung word performance to a yearly three day celebration of arts of all kinds in and outside the venues of Womanby Street, in Central Cardiff.

Returning every August since and looking forward to HUB FESTIVAL CARDIFF 2019, MEGAVERSE is organised and hosted by spoken word performer Will Ford. When Will created MEGAVERSE he was looking for a ‘brand name’ that implies each performer creates their own word universe and these word universes exist in parallel to each other. And that is the ethos MEGAVERSE operates under.

The aim of MEGAVERSE is to showcase an eclectic range of page and performance styles to the audience…

THE ART OF THE MIND, AT HAFAN Y COED ADULT MENTAL HEALTH UNIT:REGENERATION, RENEWAL, RECOVERY

We Grow Better Tomorrows When We Plant Good Seeds Today. True then. True now. True alwats

willdeanford's Blog

Hafan y Coed was officially opened Thursday, March 17th 2016…

Here is a little look back over my involvement with this project and the work of many people along the way…

March 11th was a proud and, in various ways, humbling day for me, and marked tangible recognition of the role of the arts in the search for and maintenance of good mental health. Just six days before the official opening of Hafan y Coed came the ‘private view’ of the art that will be on permanent display to promote and help sustain the ethos of the new facility that I personally sum up as Regeneration, Renewal, Recovery

Many months, many people and much work went into making this permanent exhibition  happen, and long may the spirit of this project be continued into the work that goes on at Hafan y Coed.

What good’ll come of saying that none of these bleeders

Make me wanna say yeah, I want you as my leader

On the road to equality, freedom, prosperity

Cos you think I’m just a peasant

With unpleasant temerity

Going off at the mouth, spittin’ out the frustration

Seeing you Muppet Show Muthas
Pissin’ over the nation

Like people are nothing
Once their votes have been courted

Then it’s back to your game of thrones
To see your enemies thwarted

Like

EMPEROR PALPATINE
PALPATINE

wanting UNLIMITED POWER

But if someone’s got a

OBI WAN CORBYN

He’s lost a lot of his heft


So who do I follow, I ask from the mic

When I feel I like wanna see
ALL of your heads on a spike

What do I do now, lose heart?
Get depressed?

Guess I’m just spillin’ words
To get this shit off my chest
 
But what good’ll come of saying

Too far gone for dialysis?

Fightin’ and workin’

Circle jerkin’ while

Being shoved in your hole

This verse is better than
All of you fools
Trying to get to the top


Unlike your self-serving bullshit
At least it comes to a stop.
