SXWKS presents 5 to 12

Past Event

A unique, interactive experience detailing private moments through film, photography, poetry, music and illustration.

It’s five minutes to midnight. You feel it set in: that familiar feeling of self-reflection. You sink. Deep. Deeper into the realm of introspection…


But what if your late night private thoughts were brought to life? What would they look like?


Through an amalgamation of film, photography, poetry, music and illustration, join Spread the Word’s Young People’s Laureate Caleb Femi and the SXWKS collective as they capture that 5 to 12 feeling, creating a unique interactive space for individuals to unmask and immerse themselves in.

A special event at Free Word, not to be missed!
