A few friends have joined together – Elaine Malone, Izabela Szczutkowska, Marjie Kaley, Emma Kelly and Francesca de Buyl Pisco – to organize a four day event to raise money for the Rape Crisis Centre in Cork. With the event kicking off on International Women’s Day, the multi-discliplinary line-up aims to celebrate female artistry and collaboration while raising awareness for a very important cause.
Running from March 8th-11th upstairs in The Roundy, there will be live performances from such acts as Lowlek, Elaine Malone, Dowry and all-female improvised group HEX. There will be performance art from Inma Pavon, Linda Cullen and Noelle O’Reagan, the “Come out and Play” cabaret curated by writer/poet Tina Pisco as well as DJ’s, spoken word, poetry, a daytime craft market and few surprises along the way.
With more acts to be announced, the daily run-down of events will be posted on merakindie.com, keep an eye on their facebook page for updates. All events will be donation based.
