Ploughing the Salt Sea – Community Workshop

About this event

Ahead of singer-songwriter and composer Bev Lee Harling’s show, Ploughing the Salt Sea, we invite you to celebrate our unwritten heritage and explore our female ancestry. Stories of our mums, aunts, grannies, neighbours, family friends.

Historically, women’s stories have been seldom written and often undervalued: while digging into her own heritage, Bev found this to be true of her family also.

To redress the balance, please come to this creative workshop where we will experiment with music-making, sound recording, drawing and writing in order to capture and celebrate these important personal narratives about the women who shaped us.

All ages, genders and forms of gender expression are welcome. Come solo, as a couple or with family.

The artworks and soundscapes made at the workshop will be recorded and displayed alongside Bev’s solo show at Ropetackle on Tues 5 Sep, and tour a number of coastal locations until the end of the year. At each location, this workshop will be repeated with a new local audience.

Help Bev Lee Harling kick off the show by sharing your own story, and become a part of this evolving creative exchange!

Participants should bring a notebook and pen. Duration: 90mins.

Free but ticketed. Spaces limited.
