“Women Speak” is a lavish mix of Appalachian female voices—northern, central, southern, Affrilachian, Indigenous, Asian-Appalachian, LGBTQ, those with disabilities and developmental differences, emerging and well-established. Ohio Poet Laureate Kari Gunter-Seymour hosts an evening of story, poetry, and song—every voice raised in tribute to Appalachian endurance, honor, courage, love of family, community, and the land. Doors open at 6 pm.

This event is free to attend! Your ticket will serve as a seat reservation. When selecting tickets, you will be able to select “free admission”, or you will see different options to donate to Stuart’s Opera House. Donations are greatly appreciated, but not required.

Can’t make it in person? Join us virtually at 7 pm for a livestream from the event.

About Women of Appalachia Project:

The Women of Appalachia Project was created to address discrimination directed at women from the Appalachian region by encouraging participation from women artists of diverse backgrounds, ages and experiences to come together, to embrace the stereotype, to show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her.


Effective March 14th, 2022, Stuart’s Opera House no longer requires proof of vaccination or negative COVID test for entry to public events, and masks are optional for all patrons, staff, and volunteers.
