Word in Hand has a 'safer spaces' policy, which means that performers and audiences are respected and given space to tell their stories. We're telling stories on the land of the Gadigal and Wangal peoples of the Eora nation: with respect to Elders, and acknowledging that sovereignty never ceded.
A health science and psychology student working in mental health, striving to destigmatise mental health in diverse communities. A person who is looking for the best ways to talk about the worst things. A writer/artist/musician/poet who’s running out of ways to express himself.
Malaika Green is an Australian / Tanzanian Indie Acoustic singer, songwriter, guitarist and activist who aims to use her musical influence to touch on societal issues. She has a natural ability to captivate you with her soulful voice and maturity beyond her years. Malaika feels issues like sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia and general bigotry are alive and well in our society today, and she aims to voice the importance of fighting back to end hate and reach equality.
FELICIA FOXX darlings: the realest Tiddah of Sydney! Felicia is a fully fledged fierce desert bloom, blossoming beyond our wildest “dream time” dreams. Felicia Foxx would like to think she is a queen of colour inspiring all other queens of colour that you can make it anywhere if you stick to your fabulous glittery guns and make a difference in your communities. This Queen will take you back into the Dream time with her Luscious Long and Faboriginal Legs.
We pay our respects to the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora nation, on whose lands we meet. We recognise they never ceded sovereignty or authority to any state or corporate entity. Those of us who are not Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander live, work and play on stolen land, born of genocide, in what is currently a white extremist state. We'd like to pay respects to First Nations storytellers in our community.
