On 25 May 2018, Ireland will vote to repeal or retain the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution. To mark this historic occasion, Ormston House and EVA International will host a special referendum edition of Stanzas’ Evening of Words on the theme: Vox Populi.
Stanzas is a poetry-focused arts organisation which gives emerging writers a platform to perform their work in an open-mic environment and to print new writing via monthly hand-made chapbooks. Stanzas is programmed by Caleb Brennan, Jared Nadin, Dan O’Malley, and Shane Vaughan, artists-in-residence on the R&R Programme at Ormston House. You can also find Stanzas on Facebook here and on Twitter here.
