Spoken Word London have been asked to host the open-mic spoken word section of 'The Only Way is Ethics Troublemakers Takeover Day' at the Bishopsgate Institute on Sunday 11th May, from midday to 3pm.
The Troublemakers event series seeks to explore protest and campaigning throughout the ages from a unique and interactive perspective, asking the question: what is worth the trouble? The Only Way is Ethics, of which regular SWL performer Andrea Spisto is a member, is a youth-led programme inspired by London's protest heritage and contemporary issues. The young producers, curators and artists create exhibitions, performances and and debate events that platform their voices and ask us all to own our views.
The TOWIE Troublemakers Takeover Day will have an eclectic range of pop-up protests and interactive workshops designed around this remit, inspired by London troublemakers past and present. Spoken Word London will be hosting their usual open-mic format in the Library, plus delivering a range of 'Troublemakers' performances from our regular readers, curated for the event by SWL host Pat Cash and Andrea Spisto.
The event begins at 11am, with SWL kicking off at 12pm. Sign up for a slot any time between 11am-12pm.
Free entry, but advance booking is required. For more information and booking: http://www.bishopsgate.org.uk/event/455/Troublemakers?---TOWIE-Troublemakers-Takeover-Day
