Newham Arts Festival 2008 – “Bring It ”
Saturday June 28 – Stratford Circus – 12.30pm
Seven teams, drawn from schools across five London boroughs (Waltham Forest, Greenwich, Lambeth, Newham and Barnet), showcase poetryn and performance skills developed through the SLAM project in a dynamic final event. They present the work of the next generation of writers and performers in London’s spoken word poetry scene.
The London Teenage Poetry SLAM, now in its sixth year, was developed in collaboration between Peter Khan, an English teacher from Chicago, and Fahro Malik, Chief Executive Office of London-based educational arts charity, ‘My world, Our World.’ The project is funded by the Jack Petchey Foundation, Lynk Reach, Lynk Ray and participating schools.
