Take part in a free, immersive spoken word workshop

Interested in poetry, rapping or performing and aged 15–25? Want to learn spoken word, creative writing and performance skills? Come along to this this free spoken word workshop.

Work with poet Deanna Rodger to devise creative responses to the Tate Archive. Discover stories of artist refugee camps and explore themes in relation to transition, freedom and hope today. Learn about the processes of creating poetry then generate poems yourself. You’ll have the opportunity to perform within an installation created by Tate Collective London, inspired by the artist refugee camps.

Deanna Rodger is an international performer and facilitator, a former UK Poetry Slam Champion and co-curator of leading spoken word events.
