As usual, our friends over in Edinburgh at ACE, have pulled together another couple of months of events, important, interesting, and worthy of attention. So if you can shuffle over to Edinburgh and given them your support, all worth while.
Sunday 25th August
Rising Free book reading in aid of Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre
SHRUB Coop (Zero Waste Hub)
22 Bread street, EH3 9AF
Sisters Uncut Edinburgh invite you to share space with and listen to the voices behind Rising Free, a recently published anthology of creative writing from Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre.
Following the reading and a short break, survivors in the audience will be welcome to share their own voices in an open mic. Entry is by donation with all money collected going to support Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre.
This topic of this event can provoke a range of emotional responses. There will be provision of support available for anyone who finds the event difficult.
