artfarmers is a friendly and open group of dreamers and lovely people. we make ace art, performance and events happen in the city of Bradford.
it would be brilliant if you wanted to join us on our journey. we invite you to create magnificent things and times with us.
we are passionate about being accessible to all the people in Bradford and aim to share art, performance and events with more of our sisters and brothers.
We have two open Mic. sessions to talk about. First is this Wednesday (18th April) at the New Beehive Inn 8pm. If you want to book on facebook, although you don't have to of course, follow this link: FB EVENT
Anyways... we are in need of sisterly input cause last session, which was well wicked, there were far to many men. Now its not that we don't like men, oh no, we love men... but it gets boring after a while counting the length of their beery beards into the hazy night.
Soooo... Its all about sisters this wednesday. Here's the callout:
Women of Bradford and the nearby north,
art farmers needs you!
Our open mic night is lovely and ace, but last month there was only one brave woman performing! In an attempt to redress the imbalance the amazing Miranda Arieh will be hosting a matriarchal open mic this Wednesday at the new she-hive inn. Please spread the word to your women folk and girl kin!
Boys and men are allowed and welcome to perform under the following circumstances:
a. they are accompanying a female performer or
b. they perform something that celebrates women (this can be reasonably abstract - if in doubt text me, I will act as adjudicator of suitability)
It would be great to see you all and celebrate. This Wednesday 18th April from 8pm (it's really at the beehive)
We have had two awesome reviews of our recent open mic events. the first was by Andy Abbot and you can read it in issue 4 of Howdo Magazine on page 45.
The second review was by an amazing chap by the name of Martin Christie who as luck would have it has just published a rather neat book on open mic's about the country. Its called, strangely enough, Open Mic Travels.
Now we didn't make into this amazing book because he only found us after it had gone and been published but after a visit to our night of loveliness he did write this amazing review: ARTFARMERS AMAZING OPEN MIC REVIEW!
If you are a facebooker I'm sure both Martin and Howdo would love to get liked by you:
Finally a breif word about our artfarmers open mic. in May. It's special. It takes place from 1 - 4 at Kalasangam in St Peters House and will be part of Bradfords Threadfest festival. There will be drink, food... perhaps even a sunday roast. We have plans to ram raid a toby carvery on the way there... (joke)
More on that next time. TTFN and joy to all our woodland folk.
