My heartfelt gratitude to all who came and all who were courageous to perform and share at the Soirée on Saturday the 24th of November! It was a profoundly moving and joyous afternoon, the power of voice and community never ceases to amaze me.
To everyone who performed and shared, your bravery and courage inspired us all! To stand up in front of a group of people for the 1st time or the 10th time not knowing, not wanting to make a mistake, nerves shaking, not wanting to be judged, allowing yourself to be seen and heard with all your perfections and imperfections, was truly beautiful. It was an honour to bear witness, and I can’t wait until next time!
