Why do I do what I do?
It’s a funny thing. I started fiddling with this a couple of months ago because I was blown away by two spoken word poets. They said what was inside of me. I realised that some people describe why I’m driven to keep getting people involved, sharing experiences that challenge our assumptions and standing up for social justice FAR BETTER than I can explain it – and they’ve never even met me.
Coincidentally, I’ve just started working on the local Words over Waltham Forest Festival recruiting and co-ordinating the volunteers. It’s exciting – language and literary inspired events in libraries, pubs, pop-up-whatevers all over my home borough. So it seems appropriate to share these words now. Over to you, lads… You say it so much better than I ever could.
