Today marks the beginning of an exciting new project in partnership with British Council Connect ZA and The Roundhouse in the UK.

The Talking Doorsteps project sees film-maker Pippa Riddick and poet Deanna Rodger working with 8 local poets to produce a series of poetry videos. Since 2011, groups of young creatives have worked with professional spoken work artists to create pop-up performances on doorsteps across London.

Talking Door Steps – Venetia

The eight participants are:
Xongani Maluleka
Ross Poet
Xabiso Vili
Thando Bella Khoza
Paballo Sethi
Mutinta Bbenkele
Apiwe Mjambane
Lucas Pilgrim Serei

We’re looking forward to seeing the videos you will produce in this week.
