My World, My Words: fundraiser for EducAid

March 24 at 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free - £3

Join us for a spectacular evening of spoken word performance, author discussion and art auctioning in support of EducAid!

EducAid runs an educational network comprising of free schools and teacher training. It provides top-quality, holistic education and support to vulnerable young Sierra Leoneans. They are a UK registered charity which believes that the education of young men and women is essential to unlock human potential, overcome poverty, improve wellbeing, build democracy, and that it is the cornerstone of stable development. Their vision is a democratic, dignified and prosperous Sierra Leone, where poverty is eliminated by educated citizens who are able to develop their personal, social and economic wellbeing.

Rev Geoffrey Baines will be talking about his new colouring book, Slow Journeys in the Same Direction, a creative approach to exploring mindfulness with a twist. In addition, some of Geoffrey’s original artwork will be auctioned off to raise money for EducAid, and the night will be rounded out with a variety of spoken word performances. Come and experience a bumper night of bookish entertainment…all for a good cause!
