poets in education scheme
A performance poetry workshop is an excellent, fun way to develop the confidence, self-esteem, literacy and life skills of children, young people and adults. We work with a diverse range of artists for all groups and settings: early years, schools, museums, libraries, youth groups, pupil referral units, and even supermarkets!
Popular themes include work on identity, National Poetry Day, celebrating black history and Children’s Book Week. Check out our diary dates page for further information on these and other important dates during the year. A workshops can even contribute to the Arts Mark award!
