This project in more detail

‘Writerz n Scribez’ is a project that aims to create an arena to develop the ability for free expression. It aims to promote lyricism to the masses allowing young people to carry the torch of creativity. Our focus is to craft relevant expressions through inner voices externally spoken; providing a platform to imaginatively articulate these experiences. Fusing passionate artists with young people, it encourages and challenges both parties to share writing styles and techniques; igniting a love for lyricism in a plethora of complimentary ways. The project involves weekly two hour workshops for six weeks. Young people in the project will experience creative writing workshops run by differing artists (rappers, performance poets, spoken word artists, scriptwriters and songwriters) to increase their awareness, knowledge and enjoyment of writing. These workshops will also improve confidence and stage presence while enhancing performance skills.
