Beyond Labels: In Young Men’s Shoes
Mon 31 October 2016, 19:00 – 20:00 GMT
This amazing spoken word performance is the culmination of an 8 month project with 11 boys aged 11 to 16 years.
The boys have worked with members of Young Identity poetry cooperative in Manchester to create a powerful and inspirational spoken word performance that gives voice to their lives, from their hopes and dreams to their anxieties and fears and everything in between. Through the spoken word The Beyond Labels collective aim to change perceptions, inspire and empower by making people see ‘beyond’ the concepts that bind and limit us.
An accompanying photography exhibition will be on display at the venue, and the performance will include a short film which the group produced in collaboration with Seal Films., around their group poem ‘Beyond Labels’.
This session promises to be interesting, thought-provoking and extremely enjoyable.
