Poet-Performers Wanted Urgently!

Heritage: 7 poets wanted to perform new work inspired by museums objects.

As part of The Lyric Lounge, WORD! and 2Funky Arts are seeking seven emerging talents to write and perform new work, inspired by museum objects.

Commissioned poets will be paid £200 each and attend six closely mentored workshops, between April and July 09, with renowned poet and director, Kevin Fegan. Their finished work will be professionally set to music and visuals and performed as part of ‘Heritage’ one of 7 high profile ‘Lyric Lounge’ nights. ‘Heritage’ will explore Special Olympics values and be a chance to develop your talent and profile whilst learning more about accessing museum resources.

WORD! and 2Funky Arts will be holding an audition to select participants for ‘Heritage’. The audition will be held as part of WORD! on Tuesday March 3rd 2009, 8pm, at The Y (East St) Leicester. We'd really like you to perform as you would at an open mic (3-5 mins), but feel free to incorporate the theme(s) of heritage into your piece if you'd like. To register and for more information please contact Pam Thompson, via: You can also register on the night.
