Event description

Description

Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture is hosting Inua Ellams R.A.P party workshops.

Join us for a Rhythm and Poetry workshop with Inua Ellams, where you'll explore the verses and structure of your favourite rap songs.

The workshop

Discuss your favourite verses. What is it about? What does it mean? What do you like and don't like? How is it constructed?

Learn about how poetry is formed and then finish by working in groups to develop your own verses.

You'll need to arrive with a four-line section/verse from a favourite hip hop song and be able to tell us what you like about the lines.

What's a R.A.P Party?

It's a debate that has raged for years and rages still; whether or not Rap is Poetry or Poetry, Rap. We ain't concerned with this, we respect, cherish and are fans of both word-art-forms. We wish to share and showcase them at their meeting... Music. This is what the R.A.P Party is about. It is neither club night nor poetry reading, rave nor literary event. It feels like a lowkey house party where a few errant guests make beautiful speeches about why the Dj's selection is the amazing.

The workshop is part of 3 events happening this summer following the normal R.A.P party format to investigate what eloquent voices from contemporary poetry and spoken word movements have to say about hip-hop’s past, present and future across venues in Waltham Forest.

The events will be an unashamedly nostalgic, fun, no clutter, no fuss, straight up evening of hip-hop inspired poems and favourite hip-hop songs.
