A collaborative event between two Quay Words writers-in-residence

Olive and Billy will perform and read from their work, followed by a conversation and Q&A to discuss shared themes that have arisen during their time in residence at Exeter Custom House.

They will explore the season theme of heritage in relation to their work, the individual, and wider social and political context of their respective African ancestry.

Olive will be displaying artworks during the course of the week of her residency. The displayed works are artistic expressions of the poems that she will perform on the final night of her international residency visit from South Africa.

Come along and join in the discussion.
