WE ARE POETS presents a moving and inspirational story of youth, art and freedom of expression, as a remarkable team of six British teenagers are chosen to represent the UK at Brave New Voices: the most prestigious Poetry Slam competition in the world. From their inner city lives in Northern England, to a stage in front of the White House in Washington DC, the young poets explosively lay bare the concerns of a generation as they take on the world and prepare for a transformational journey of a lifetime.
Cinematic, imaginative and uniquely honest, WE ARE POETS is a moving testament to the power of creativity, community and the dynamism of young people. Anyone tempted to dismiss today’s youth as politically apathetic better pay heed: here is electrifying evidence to the contrary.

KEATS HOUSE is a museum. A vibrant, thriving museum dedicated to the poetry of John Keats, and to poetry in general. But it is a museum none the less. As well as supporting the development of young poets, the Forum has been established to ensure that on top of honoring the poetry of the past, Keats house is also a platform for the poetry of the future!
POETRY LIVES HERE!
