Join Cultureword writers and Out Of Bounds Poets at a performance and discussion on a transformative poetics of place in Britain today. Written by innovative Black and Asian poets rooted in Britain, the Out of Bounds anthology is comprised of new writing that questions stereotypes and conventional tropes around black people and space in UK society and literature. Join us on an exploratory journey of their visions and provocations. We will be showcasing writers from the book such as Shamshad Khan, Peter Kalu, John Siddique and Kayo Chingonyi. There will also be a showcasing of film-poems from Cultureword writers, Christina Fonthes, Mahboobeh Rajabi, Marcela Hervia, Meschach Brenner, Sui Annuka and Morgan Bailey.
Beyond Bounds builds on the anthology Out of Bounds (Bloodaxe, 2012) and continues the nationwide touring phase of a project hosted by the Universities of Newcastle and Stirling.
