Somali Women Poets: the Next Generation

The evening, hosted and chaired by emerging photographer Mina Shoots, features Suhaama Elmi, Fatima Diriye, Sagal Farah, Aisha Nuri and Deeqa Abdi.

A panel discussion on the changing role of women in Somali culture follows the readings, exploring this year's festival theme, 'Women in Arts', which examines the contributions of British-Somali women to London's artistic landscape.
