Coven is a poetry exhibition that will run alongside Séance.

You are invited to read the words of people who’ve experienced: a touch that made them uncomfortable, healing they didn’t have time for, revenge they never acted on, something they saw that they’ll always question...

The exhibition will be curated from an open call out of poetry on the theme of seeing or experiencing sexually uncomfortable or violent events. We aim to include all the poetry submitted.

Coven is a place where we can come together and witness each other without judgement. A place where we can feel less alone.

There will be a comfortable space available to relax outside of the exhibition and a quiet space to reflect if you need it.


This is free to attend and open to the public on:

  • Friday 21st January between 10:00 and 20:30
  • Saturday 22nd January between 10:00 and 18:30

Open on 21st & 22nd January in the triangle room.

The Station, Silver Street, Bristol, BS1 2AG
