Come to our launch night and see performances from internationally acclaimed poet, slam champion and musician Steve Larkin and some of the amazing talents that have emerged through Word Up! so far... and more!
Word Up is a creative music project funded by Youth Music, devised between Fusion Arts and Steve Larkin, from Hammer and Tongue, and in partnership with Starlight Enterprise in Blackbird Leys.
Young people aged 14-18 (and up to 25 if SEN) are given the chance to bring their lyrical talent to the fore with guidance from acclaimed poet and international slam champion Steve Larkin, as well as being offered the opportunity to earn an Open College Network accreditation. During this programme of 4 courses across Oxfordshire, young participants are working on their lyrics, their performances and their set-up as performers and/or educators through training opportunities.
