Flint & Pitch present two evenings of spoken word, music and provocations, each bringing together five diverse acts to creatively respond to the theme Reclaim This Script. Can 'reclaiming' slurs bring empowerment? How best to change dominant narratives about the causes of mental ill health? How can we have better conversations about this, in life and through creative works? Come hear these broad themes explored through poetry, song and more.
