About the show
LIVE EVENT AT THEATRE PECKHAM
Poetic Unity is a Brixton-based charity with the vision of giving young people a voice to empower them to reach their highest potential. They use poetry as a tool to support young people, creating positive change in their lives and in wider society.
Throughout the recent lockdown we partnered with Poetic Unity to deliver a number of digital programmes that further encouraged young people to use poetry and spoken word as a vehicle to translate their feelings at this time of worldwide uncertainty. Over this period dozens of young people poured their emotions into heart-wrenching, honest and powerful spoken word pieces and refined their skills to become some of the next emerging writers to watch out for.
Now, for one night only, Poetic Unity brings together a line-up of spoken words artists who will be gracing our mic for this Lockdown Showcase, with an opportunity for other young writers who have what it takes to touch the open mic. Hosted by award-winning poet Ragz-CV (pictured), this isn’t a night to miss.
