Raise the Bar presents... 'Still I Rise: Poetry and Resistance'.

A stunning lineup of sensational spoken word performances from Travis Alabanza, Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan and Birdspeed, hosted by Bristol's inimitable City Poet Vanessa Kisuule. A special evening of performances from prominent poets and activists, illustrating the power and role of poetry in shaping resistance movements, coinciding with Arnolfini's fantastic current exhibition.

"Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance - Act 3" is a timely exhibition focusing on the his/herstory of resistance movements and alternative forms of living from a gendered perspective. This major group exhibition looks at resistance across different times, places and scales: from the domestic sphere to large-scale uprisings. Highlighting the experiences of women and celebrating their triumphs, Still I Rise shows how the struggle for liberation is ongoing - and hard-won. At Arnolfini, Still I Rise also responds to local conversations about Bristol's legacy in the Transatlantic Slave Trade by focusing on black feminist artwork and activism.

"Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise."
- Maya Angelou, Still I Rise
