Come on a poetic journey with Toni Seaward, in her show Platitudes, she looks at life, love and lockdown from 2020 and beyond. We have seen words play a central role in our online, zoom oriented lives and communication becoming more important than ever in our socially distanced world. Moving from physical to verbal words take on new meanings all while our politicians give speech after speech every day. But what did this mean for you, for us? Do these words ring true or are they just platitudes? Toni Seaward is a writer, poet and spoken word artist based in the Southside of Glasgow. Her works are observational and reactive and usually interwoven with a strong sense of motherhood and the female condition. Toni has always been interested in how we connect to each other and the world around us on an emotional level and I use my poetry to try and make sense of these emotional connections on a personal and universal level. Toni has performed at various events as well as radio, festivals and podcasts as well as having some published works and organising multidisciplinary events and she always looks forward to being involved in events in her local area.
