Apples and Snakes, in partnership with Forward Arts Foundation, present a programme of acclaimed featured acts and up-and-coming artists, hosted by Kat Francois, plus their renowned open mic.

February’s line-up features:

Malika Booker – an international writer whose work is steeped in anthropological research methodology and rooted in storytelling. Her writing spans poetry, theatre, monologue, installation, and education.

Bohadan Piasecki – a poet from Poland based in Birmingham. A committed performer, he has taken his poems from the upstairs room in an Eastbourne pub to the main stage of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, from underground Tokyo clubs to tramways in Paris, from a bookshop in Beijing to an airfield in Germany.

Jason Allen-Paisant – a scholar, award-winning poet, and writer. His work explores the ways in which Afro-diasporic artists and communities shape their futures through embodied, living philosophies. His work is deeply concerned with poetry, and the overlaps between poetry and philosophy.
