We’re well underway with Shake the Dust, the biggest youth poetry slam the UK has ever seen! We have poets working in school and out of school settings in every region in England, helping young people create, learn and perform their words. That’s ninety artists delivering spoken word workshops for around a thousand young people!
Before they began their epic task, the Poet Coaches and their Shadows (artists who are developing their skills and just starting to work in education) undertook some training with Jacob Sam-La Rose, Shake the Dust’s artistic director and slam workshop expert. We thought we’d share some of the photos from these sessions on the blog!
