Into writing, lyrics, rhyming, telling stories, making beats, rapping and MCing, or performing poetry? We’re running a FREE 6 week project giving you the chance to find your voice, tell your story and work with words. Collaborate with a professional team of directors, performers, musicians, and filmmakers to create a multimedia group performance for a Roundhouse stage.

The project will take place on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays between 11 October and 24 November 2017. Sessions run 10am – 5pm and there will be evening performances in the final week.

What will I get from taking part?

  • Writing, performance and promotion skills, taught by industry professionals and artists
  • Opportunities to see live shows at the Roundhouse
  • The chance to work towards a Bronze Arts Award
  • Advice and support around your next steps into education, employment or, training

Do I need any particular skills or experience to take part?

I’m not sure I can afford to take part…
