Writers of stories, songs, poetry and everything in between will have the chance to share their work at an event aimed at combatting violence against women.
The Katherine Women's Information and Legal Service (KWILS) is hosting a spoken word event on Thursday, to give the community a chance to talk about some difficult topics.
The event, which will be held at Peakabrew Cafe from 5pm, is open to anyone who wants to take the mic or just watch.
KWILS chief executive Siobhan Mackay said the event was originally set to be held on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls on November 25, but was postponed due to COVID.
"But what the 25th of November also does is it kicks off 16 days of activism to end gender-based violence, so tomorrow will be the day 15 of the 16 days of activism," she said.
"It's like an open mic [for] anyone who wants to get up and say a few words. So whether that be a haiku or a song or a limerick, or a poem...something that people have written themselves or...a work that they've read that really inspires them and they would really like to share.
It can be in any language, sign language. It's really all about creating this space for...starting conversations."
Following the spoken word event will be a screening of the film The Justice of Bunny King at the Katherine Cinema in partnership with the Katherine Film Society.
"It's about a woman who's caught up in child protection and really trying to turn her life around to get her kids back," Ms Mackay said.
"Just really looking at the battles that women can face in our society and the strength that women have to turn that around."
Both events are free to attend but attendees must register for one or both events via this link.
