Audre Lorde: a prideful reading series

Language: Dutch or English, depending on the speaker
Livestream programming!

During this Shakespeare Club we are thrilled to partner with IHLIA LGBT Heritage to present a series of early morning readings of work by Audre Lorde, read by local queer writers who have been inspired by Lorde’s work and legacy. Lorde’s work as a writer, poet and professor is of monumental importance. She wrote about – and practiced – intersectionality at a time before the term was even coined. Her work remains vitally relevant and urgent to this day. The texts by Audre Lorde are selected by the writers reciting them. They will briefly introduce it and expand upon it by sharing the inspiration they have found in the particular text as well as in Lorde’s oeuvre.

Tuesday: Tieneke Sumter introductie
Wednesday: Euredice Tauwnaar and she reads: For Each of You en The Black Unicorn
Thursday: Sanguilla Vabrie and she reads: tba
Friday: Smita James and she reads: tba
Saturday: Babeth Fonchie and she reads: Coping en Therapy

The series will be livestreamed from the empty courtyard of the Amsterdam Museum. You are invited and encouraged to read along. Please note this is not mandatory or a necessity.
