With our other screenings exploring the female experience, children and family, for this event we turn our attention to the youth voice and learn how one group of young people have made themselves heard.

We Are Poets is a documentary film which follows six young poets from Leeds Young Authors performance poetry group in Leeds on their visit to the international Poetry Slam Competition in Washington D.C., United States. The screening will be accompanied by live poetry readings. 

Unseen Histories is a month-long festival, running throughout September, of artworks and events exploring Black British history in Leeds. The festival is curated by Black artists in and around the city, with support from Heritage Corner, pioneers of the Leeds Black History Walk and Assembly House, an artist studios and project space in Armley, Leeds.
