LITERARY activist, rapper and performance art poet Rufus Mufasa is special guest at The Cellar Bards spoken word event in Cardigan on Friday, February 22.

Rufus advocates hip hop education and poetry development accessible to all. She’s a fantastically lively performer. Her solo album, Fur Coats From The Lion’s Den, was dubbed a 2017 cultural highlight by Wales Arts Review.

She is a Hay Writer at Work, supports several intergenerational projects, mentors men at Parc Prison and is planning her fourth visit to Finland, where she recently headlined the Helsinki Literature Festival.

Open mic spots are always available at The Cellar Bards, Cardigan’s only regular spoken word event. The Bards welcome writers of poetry, short stories, micro-fiction and novels (maximum five minutes each).

People who want to read can put their names down at the door on the night. Or go along to listen to the fabulous Rufus Mufasa, plus a variety of spoken word performances from the talented regulars.

Doors and the bar open at 7.45pm, at the Cellar Bar, Quay Street. Entry is £3.
