Continuing the spoken word celebrations, Shake the Dust brought together some exciting up and coming voices on the international spoken word scene.

 

All the way from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, a delegation from First Wave, the first spoken word and hip-hop university programme in the US, showed us how it’s done across the pond.

 

Plus from Chicago, The Chicago Allstars are four young poets of ages 18-24 from Oak Park and River Forest. All of the poets participated in the Spoken Word club, led by Peter Kahn.
