Poetry is undeniably personal. For spoken word artists like Sarah Callaghan it’s a collection of intimate feelings. Of love, of loss. Of thoughts found around the city and tapped into a phone’s notes.
Performing, too, is personal. Poets need somewhere they feel comfortable expressing themselves. Spaces where they can be totally vulnerable.
Sky Arts provides this positive place. The now free-to-air channel gives undiscovered talent a stage on which they can shine. Original shows, such as Life and Rhymes, focus the spotlight on the diverse voices of Britain, inspiring artists and audiences to share in the emotions we all experience.
No matter who we are. No matter where we come from.
All with the belief that everyone deserves a platform to be seen and heard.
