Voices that Shake: young people in arts, media, race and power

28 Feb

Check out this short video for the excellent Voices that Shake project, which brings together young people, artists and campaigning.  It is a collaboration between Platform London, an organisation that merges art and campaigning on social and environmental issues, and the Stephen Lawrence Centre.  My friend, excellent poet, fellow writer, and co-creator of this blog, Selina Nwulu, was involved in the spoken word and poetry side of the project, which also included music and filmmaking.  They had a preview performance at the Arcola Theatre last Saturday, which was pretty sick.  Check out the video, made by production company/social enterprise Chocolate Films, and hear Selina’s skin-tinglingly good poetry here:
