Who we are
Boundless & Bare is a representation agency for Spoken Word events and performers in the Irish Spoken Word community. Run by Melissa Ridge and Melanie O’Donovan. We produce monthly Spoken Word Gig Guides and co-host a spoken word podcast.
Boundless & Bare aims to strengthen and elevate the spoken word community in Ireland. We honour the creativity that has existed in Ireland for generations and bring attention to the talent that exists today. We are a community that allows people to enhance their craft, connect with other creatives and find new platforms to showcase everything they have to offer.
Throughout everything we do we promote spoken word as an art form. By honouring artists and working with the change makers of today.
We value the people who offer platforms and support to the artists. Through town hall meetings, gig guides and ongoing dialogues; we will support organisers in making their events the best they can be.
Through round tables, artist management and social advertising; we will highlight the best creatives in Ireland. We will represent them and help them enhance their craft and careers.
We are raising the profile of spoken word as a literary and performance art form. Through our podcast, videos and workshops we hope to encourage more involvement.
