Borderlines - poetry for Brexit

UEL students will take part in a special evening of poetry to mark 'Brexit'

International spoken word artist Joelle Taylor will be joined by students from the University of East London (UEL) for a special evening to mark 'Brexit' day on 29 March.

A group of 10 or so young poets, including three from UEL Drama, Applied Theatre and Performance, will take part in Joelle Taylor’s project Borderlines, focusing on spoken word pieces they have created around the theme of ‘Borders’, transitions and challenging ideas of division between people and cultures.

The group will also include young poets from the Poetry Society’s youth programmes: Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award, SLAMbassadorsUK, and the Young Poets Network. 

This event will be live-streamed to an online site, where the UK group will be joined by other groups in ten UK cities and seven cities across Europe.

The event has been planned for some time to mark 'Brexit' Day which has been identified as the day the United Kingdom will leave the European Union. It may still happen on that day...and the poets will continue to mark it.

Tickets are free, and can be obtained here.

When: 29 March from 7-9 pm

Where: University of East London, Studio 4 at University Square Stratford, 1 Salway Street, London E15 1NS
