We are lucky to be in a district with so much talent & are delighted to showcase emerging artists and poets from the University of Birmingham. The Forum has been making connections with various parts of the University for over a year now, last year Sarah Silverwood who was the then Artist in Residence from UoB delivered a workshop at Druids Heath Library (take a look at her blog http://www.sarahsilverwood.com) & Max Merrick Wren played us some of his lovely songs at Leverton & Halls Deli. This year we are delighted to give another opportunity for Max to step into the spotlight with covers & originals – here’s a recent video
He will be joined by Tamar Williams who won the Young Storyteller of the Year Award & has been doing all sorts of other wonderful stuff including acting in The Rep Foundry artist Polly Tisdall’s Bright Child: Icarus Reforged.
And finally there will be poetry from students on the English Creative Arts course led by UoB lecturer, Luke Kennard. We are looking forward to welcoming them all to Headmasters Hair Salon in Cotteridge & hope you will join us. It’s all free and if you wish to reserve tickets please email firstname.lastname@example.org
