British Library Hosts Olympic Inspired Spoken Word Showcase
Following the London 2012 Paralympic Games closing ceremony, Circuit Live will be celebrating the Olympians achievements with the help of some of London’s finest young lyricists and upcoming spoken word artists…
On September 13 at 6:30pm, The British Library is set to host an outdoor relay race-style spoken word event, which will unite aspiring young poets from all over London to showcase material inspired by the seven Olympic & Paralympic values: Excellence, Respect, Friendship, Inspiration, Determination, Courage and Equality.
The unique Olympic-inspired event encourages young people across the capital to utilise their local libraries for research and drawing on the literary talent of mentors such as international spoken word artist Malika Booker, Mercury-nominated rapper TY, the widely regarded godfather of UK hip-hop Rodney P, poet Dean Atta and many more.
