Spoken Word programme at Arts Centre 30/05/17

| May 30, 2017


All Spoken Word legends, and Peter Murphy in association with Wexford Arts Centre with the support of the Wexford County Council Artist in the Community grant, are looking to support new spoken word performers through an open call for the new Seed to Stage Young Creatives Spoken Word Programme.

We’re seeking young blood interested in taking part in Seed to Stage, a spoken word mentoring programme. Poetry, slam poetry, storytelling, prose with music – any kind of stage performance inspired by the written word.

As part of Wexford County Council’s Artist in the Community initiative, novelist and spoken word performer Peter Murphy will work in a mentoring and collaborative capacity with a team of approximately ten young (16-25) aspiring performers to write and stage an original show to be developed over a five-week period and then staged at Wexford Arts Centre this August. The programme will be FREE of charge.  No prior experience necessary.  The programme will provide an opportunity for creative expression and participants will gain confidence in developing their own spoken word pieces and also performing them.

If you’re interested, we’d love to meet you. Tell us about what you’re interested in, what you write, what you read, who you listen to, what you care about, what makes you inspired, what your ambitions are.   If suited for the programme, then we’ll go to work.

Email: seedtostage@gmail.com Before 5pm Monday 12th June, 2017 to be considered for the programme.  Limited spaces.
