A Mic of One's Own: Kinship

Live Book Tickets

We are delighted to invite you to our next edition of A Mic of One’s Own, a series of collaborations between Kunstinstituut Melly and The Writer’s Guide (to the Galaxy). This will be the first edition of this year and will take place in MELLY Bookshop and Café.

The theme this time is kinship (a relation between people of the same family, think: sisterhood!). Inspiration for the theme is the installation Soliloquy by the Bandung-based artist collective Tromarama, that will be on display at Melly the first half of this year. In this amazing and beautiful piece ninety second-hand lamps are scattered around the space. Each time the hashtag #kinship is used on Twitter, the tweet is converted into binary code, triggering their switches and creating a symphony of flickers.

With these sessions, we aim to create a safe space for intimate stories to be shared. To ensure that, we expect all participants to respect each other’s privacy and vulnerability.


As part of the collaborative nature of Jessy Koeiman's work in collective learning, she brings Writer's Guide to the Galaxy and their series A Mic of One's Own to our multi functional space on the ground floor, simply called MELLY. This bookshop, café, and event space is developed with our collective learning spirit in mind.
