SHELTER – SPOKEN WORD PROJECT

A group of boys from Newham schools worked with the super-gifted and inspirational duo, spoken word artist Inua Ellams and singer/artist Belle, to produce their own exciting spoken word pieces. The results were touching, funny, heartfelt and incredibly mature and articulate – a testament to the hard work of Inua, Belle and the boys involved.

The pieces went on to be shortlisted at the BBC/Poetry Society’s SLAMbassadors competition, and the boys were invited to meet Benjamin Zephaniah and Scroobius Pip at the awards.

The project was supported by Shelter’s Keys to the Future project.

Michael and Hazel Chandler directed, filmed and edited these films. All the films are available here, but below are a few of them
