This time we welcome writer and teaching artist Arielle John, whose work twists home-grown narratives from the Caribbean diaspora into intricate memoirs and intriguing Instagram photo captions. Arielle represented her country in the 2008 Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam competition. London’s premier psychedelic rap animals, Strangelove, will be joining us on the music. Strangelove are made up of Jakabosski and Chango Flash, who will be bringing their mix mezze of word jazz and moody future-beats.
Joining these epic acts, the Chill Pill team; Adam Kammerling, Raymond Antrobus, Deanna Rodger, Simon Mole and Mr Gee will be performing new works.
