Multilingual Poetry Slam at the Institut français

  • Live Events
  • Schools
  • Ages 12+

The Multilingual Poetry Slam comes back to the South Ken Kids Festival for its third year running! A creative writing and spoken word experience hosted by performance poet and Modern Foreign Language teacher Michaël Vidon and spoken-word artist and soon-to-be doctor Keith Jarring. Students collaborate with peers from different schools and year groups to produce multilingual poems to be shared in a Slam.

Mature Nature? Ma Terre en guerre?” will be our theme this year. The aims of the day are to improve confidence in writing and speaking English and any other languages spoken at home or studied at school.
