Shake the Dust project
featured in the Evening Standard.
Last week ended on a high at Rosie Lee as the Evening Standard listed Shake the Dust —the national poetry slam we've branded and are helping to launch — in its Top 20 Cultural Olympiad Highlights.
Shake the Dust, run by national performance poetry organisation Apples and Snakes, is the biggest youth poetry event the UK has ever seen. It brings together young people from up and down the country; shining a spotlight on their voices that would otherwise be unheard and using slam poetry to inspire and motivate them to share their lives, stories and dreams.
