WORDCUP2014 - Poetry Slam Final Teaser

Apples and Snakes - WORDCUP2014 Poetry Slam Final - the point is not the points from Apples and Snakes on Vimeo.

Coinciding with the football World Cup, WORDCUP2014 is a celebratory spoken word project for young people aged 13-15. Since April, teams selected from 10 schools in East London have been working with top professional poets to put pen to paper and create their own poetry and spoken word.

The teams come together on stage for the live SPOKE: WORDCUP2014 poetry slam final. London's Young Poet Laureate, Warsan Shire will be a judge, along with the brilliant Khadijah Ibrahiim and Mr. Gee. The slam will also feature award-winning hip-hop dance company Boy Blue Entertainment, and poet Russeni Fisher!

WORDCUP2014 is part of SPOKE: Air, a wider programme of events to promote poetry and spoken word across East London.
