Readers of Colour X Fringe of Colour

Readers of Colour x Fringe of Colour

This Summer, we are excited to take part in the Fringe of Colour Scheme, which aims to increase the access of young people of colour in Edinburgh to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

In association with our Readers of Colour group, we’re going to bring together young women* and non-binary people of colour aged between 16 and 25 to take part in our Glasgow Women’s Library X Fringe of Colour Summer partnership. The group will see two Fringe shows: Until The Flood and Enough, and take part in a special edition of our Readers of Colour group, where we’ll be reading Tomi Adeyemi’s phenomenal YA novel, Children of Blood and Bone.

The full dates for the programme are below and in our flyer and all tickets are free! If you would like to participate, or find out more, please contact nadine.jassat@womenslibrary.org.uk by Wednesday 19th July.

*All women-only events are inclusive of Trans, Intersex women, non-binary and gender fluid people.
