Since 2011, groups of young creatives have worked with the Roundhouse and professional spoken word artists to create pop-up performances on doorsteps across the world on the theme of ‘home’.

This summer, Talking Doorsteps will be working with poets in South Africa, Bulgaria and London.

We’re looking for spoken word artists and film makers, excited by the idea of mutual collaboration, to spend a week joining forces to create unique short films to add to this ever expanding bank of voices.

You’ll get mentoring from film and spoken word professionals, work with like-minded artists, and be showcased digitally on Roundhouse channels.

Check out previous participants work in the video section.
