Words Out Loud looks to family and photography when it continues its Snapshot Series on Saturday October 5 as part of the Ballarat Foto Biennale.
The Snapshot Series is a three-event series celebrating the power of photographs to trigger stories, whether real or fantastical.
Jenny Valentish will headline at our Saturday afternoon event, Mirrors of Ourselves, with a theme of family.
And Jessica Wilkinson will headline the third and final Thursday night event on October 17, Gateways to Elsewhere, with a theme of travel.
Words Out Loud is at the Printers Room, cnr of Lydiard and Mair streets, Ballarat. Poets, writers and storytellers are welcome to sign up for the open mic sections at each event, either performing to a photograph from their own collection, or simply to share their work in an unthemed, non-photographic section.
The Printers Room, under Sebastiaans, will be providing a full menu for those who would like to dine out or enjoy a nibble and a drink. There is also a $7 devonshire tea (or coffee) special on the Saturday.
Full event details and instructions on how to be part of the open mic sections are available at the website.
