Be inspired and an inspiration in equal measure to young people.
Be My Next Inspiration recognises poetry as a craft that can inspire us all. It offers a chance to reflect on the city of today; it creates opportunities for unheard voices to be heard; and it allows us to notice what matters most, through the words of young Londoners.
This new initiative, a collaboration between Spread the Word, creative agency BUREAU and the trustees of Be My Next Inspiration, aims to help young people new to poetry to understand the excitement and opportunities that words can offer them. More than this, it is a powerful statement showing that young people are being listened to.
Be My Next Inspiration is asking for collaborators to be inspired by the ten poems from young Londoners, both established and those just starting their journey and create a piece of work in any medium whether an artwork, a poster, a t-shirt, a blog post…
BE MY NEXT INSPIRATION FANZINE
BECOME A COLLABORATOR
We would love you to collaborate with us on Be My Next Inspiration.
Be inspired by the fanzine and use your creative flair, passion or will to make things happen for young Londoners.
The more work created and more voices onboard will attract more young Londoners to attend the Young People’s Laureate for London Tour, make young Londoners feel they can inspire people through their words and help young Londoners feel that their voices are being listened to.
Let us know if you are on board by dropping an email to email@example.com by Wednesday 15 August 2018.
The final work, inspired by the poems, will be unveiled on Thursday 27 September 2018.
