Into The Outside: Creative Writing Workshop for Young People with Dean Atta

We've planned some great ways to get behind the 'Into The Outside' exhibition and explore the important roles archives play. Here's an opportunity for young people to create and share their own responses to the exhibition and artefacts.

Creative Writing Workshop for Young People with Dean Atta
Jubilee Library, Jubilee Street
Brighton BN1 1GE
4.30 – 6pm, Tuesday 14 March
FREE Ages 12-19
booking required

Join poet Dean Atta to explore the Into the Outside exhibition and get inspired by selected artefacts from Brighton & Hove’s LGBTQ+ collections. With Dean’s support, respond in your own way using the written word.

No prior writing experience necessary, everyone welcome.

“Dean Atta’s poetry is as honest as truth itself”
Benjamin Zephaniah

Dean Atta’s debut poetry collection, I Am Nobody’s Nigger, published by the Westbourne Press, was shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. He was named as one of the most influential LGBT people in the UK by The Independent on Sunday Pink List and featured in Out News Global Pride Power List. Dean has performed across the UK and internationally at many high profile festivals. He has been commissioned to write poems for BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service, Dazed & Confused, Keats House Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and Tate Modern.

This is a free event, but booking is required.
