📚🛸Page Not Found and The Reading Room invite you to our first post-lockdown session with @tommyventevogel on 19 June!

➡️Limited spots available! Reserve your free ticket through the link in bio.

🤓As this is a discussion, you are expected to have read the provided texts before attending. We will provide you with a copy of the texts once you have RSVP’d.

🖋Tommy Ventevogel is a playwright and theatre-maker based in Rotterdam. Tommy also teaches sci-fi writing, text and image-techniques and has developed a course in activist writing.

The Reading Room is curated by Sissel Marie Tonn, Jonathan Reus and Flora Reznik.
