Tate Britain Showcase Young Poets
Earlier this month (February 7), Late at Tate Britain got involved in National Storytelling Week, throwing a special event in the name of spoken word. Hosted by Poetry Luv, the occasion saw aspiring poets from the Tell Tales project perform alongside the likes of George The Poet and Dean Atta.
Dean said of the event: “Getting the chance to work with young people who might not have had the chance to ever tell their stories is a real gift, and I really enjoyed performing alongside them.”
Poetry Luv was founded by Elijah Kerr, aka Jaja Soze and DJ Anthony Douglas, with a mission to help young spoken word artists find a place to shine. Find out more HERE.
