What’s important for young people all over the world today? What do they care about? And how do they express it? It seems — through poetry.
Join an exciting line-up of new poets from around the world to celebrate the launch of Global Youth Cultures, the latest issue of Wasafiri, the Magazine of International Contemporary Writing. For one night only, the myriad of issues that matter to young artists – from the political to the personal – will take centre stage, told in lyrical tongues by poets from Cambodia, the Middle East, the UK and the USA. From rap to performance poetry, the best of tomorrow’s writers will tell us how life is for young people today. If you’re inspired, add your own stories to theirs by performing at the open mic session following the show.
With Blake Brandes, Ahmed Haddad and Walid El Hamamsy, Avaes Mohammad, Rafeef Ziadah AND a screening of Kosal Khiev’s award-winning Berlin Poetry Film Festival’s Spoken Word performance.
Showing January 29 at the ICA, London.
