Event description

Description

Young People’s Laureate Momtaza Mehri will be hosting a day of workshops and performances from some of the UK’s best poets, rappers and beatboxers.

The event will feature workshops from poets Remi Graves, Bridget Minamore and Momtaza Mehri as well as from rapper and musician Dizraeli.

The workshops are followed by performances from Momtaza and Bridget, and an open mic session, which will be an opportunity for both those who attended the workshop and other local young people to perform and enjoy emerging talent.

The event is aimed at young people aged 13-25 and has been curated by local young people from the borough, who have been working with the library service to programme the day. This is a great opportunity to try out poetry, spoken word, rap and beatboxing.

This is part of the Be My Next Inspiration programme, which is challenging young people across London to respond creatively to poetry.

Free workshops from 1pm - Open mic and performance (BSL interpreted) from 5:15pm.
