Words With… Caleb Femi

Join us for an evening of discussion with poet, filmmaker and photographer Caleb Femi.

As the Young People’s Laureate for London, Caleb offers a voice for young people to express their concerns and experiences through poetry: “Poetry is the one of the purest forms of conversation. At its best, it allows us to communicate from an honest and safe place. And young people deserve to be included in such spaces.”

Caleb is featured in the Dazed 100 list of the next generation shaping youth culture. His commissions include the Tate Mordern, The Royal Society for Literature, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Guardian.

This event is open to everyone. Tickets are free but spaces are very limited and booking is required.

Words With… is a series of free talks by the Lakeside Theatre and Albert Sloman library that explore the relationship between writing and performance.
