While we can't bring you our usual flavour of events in person, we've devised something new to make sure your voices are heard during lockdown.

Stay In, Speak Out is an hour of spoken word, poetry and conversation held every fortnight, live on Instagram! Hosted by the team from The Penny Mint, it's an open mic night that you can join from the comfort of your own home. From dramatic readings of children's book to original songs, Spanish language poetry from Mexico to dog videos, at Stay In, Speak Out the space is yours.

Unlike our instalments, our final Stay In, Speak Out live stream is completely open to you and your imagination.

Come and hang out with us on Saturday, June 13th at 5pm (AEST) over at our Instagram @thepennymint.
