Kvindestemmer ’14 – lørdag 1. marts

Kvindestemmer finder i år sted den første dag i marts – en lørdag eftermiddag fyldt med god underholdning af kvindelige kunstnere. Blandt stemmerne er forfatterne Ursula Andkjær Olsen og Anne-Cathrine Riebnitzsky, multikunstneren Shohreh Sharzad og sangeren Hanne Methling. Lisbeth (min hustru, med efternavnet Tolstrup) er konferencier, og jeg har endnu en gang stået for design af invitation og program. Se det herunder – eller download programmet som pdf.
