Watch recordings from the session itself, plus interviews and poetry performed by Rotimi, Samia, Selina and Kadish (Leeds Young Authors).


Also watch interviews with Shake! poet-facilitators Sai and Zena from Ceasefire magazine’s Adam Elliot-Cooper over on our videos page.

This was the fruit of all that brilliant planning from the team: Selina, Samia, Ed, Sai, Rotimi, Jane. And big thanks to Ed from New Left Project who kept the team cooking across 4 cities in the run-up…
