Ten days of world-class jazz
You are here
Monday 17 April
In a nutshell
Calling all Goddesses and Queens! Join Livity for a night of spoken word, music and motivational speakers
The theme of the night is the garden of Eden. The all female line up will be an ode to Eve. Eve’s Garden will be a continuous project that encourages woman to get together to debate, practice self-love, take on new challenges but most importantly to help empower. Through socialisation, there is a consistent pressure to conform. Livity will offer a platform that allows women to just be, without having to pretend to be something they are not for acceptance.
What to Expect
The night will be an all female line up of spoken word, motivational speakers and DJs. There will also be interactions through light games, debates and a raffle.
Hayley Mulenda is a 19-year-old multi-award winning international speaker, entrepreneur, and author who aspires to help others reach their aspirations. After experiencing bullying in secondary school and a dark suicidal place in her first year of University, Hayley learned how to overcome it all and teach others how to speak up and overcome it too. Hayley was able to turn her setback into a comeback, now she wants to ensure every young person is able to deal with daily life lessons which may set them back too. She has been labeled "Miss Inspiration" and "The Spark" - her contagious smile reminds people that there is a spark of hope, inspiration in the world.

Jae Poet is a young up and coming female artist born and raised in South East London. Her poetry deals with issues ranging from love and relationships, racism and lifestyle choices.
Dominique Laurn is a South London born singer who doesn't necessarily want her music to be put into an specific genre as she takes inspiration from everyday experiences and sings it from a place of truth and understanding. She wants her music to make you feel something and for people to interpret her as a strong woman who also isn't afraid to let you see her more delicate state.
By day, Desree devotes her time to theatre, arts marketing and community arts but after 6pm (let’s say 7pm because of traffic), Desree is a spoken word poet. An advocate for community arts and youth projects, Desree began a night called #OMN in 2014 in her home town of Slough – which she still runs despite moving to London last year.
