Speak Your Own Medicine

Spoken word artists, writers, performers, visual storytellers, take your place at the table.

An invitation to female storytellers of all stripes. Come to this intimate salon gathering in celebration of word, storytelling and conversation. Spoken word artists, writers, performers, visual storytellers, take your place at the table.

In collaboration with the Unspoken Words collective, this salon-style evening encourages voice and words (spoken, written or signed) as the power behind our creative spirits.

Radical and rehearsed storytellers Gabrielle Journey Jones and Vanessa Lee will guide you through the power of word and process of arriving at an individual and collective rhyme. Share your truth: what’s it like to start difficult conversations, what happens when you break silence and what’s inside of you that you’d like to share? What’s converged in your life to bring you to this moment?

All parts of you are welcomed. All women (trans and cis) and non-binary people are welcomed.

Unspoken Words is a grass-roots artist collective that creates events by and for storytellers. Proceeds of this event will go to our crowdfunding campaign for a festival in celebration of creativity and community.

Gabrielle Journey Jones is a poet, percussionist and event producer born on sovereign Gadigal land, Sydney. She is from Maori and African American bloodlines and lives in the Illawarra with her family.

Vanessa Lee (Yupungathi and Merriam) is a writer, poet and social-epidemiologist. She combines art and health to create change in the world. The racism, inequality and violence that she has witnessed have influenced her writing.
