Falling in love with language and words again: Charlie Dark interview part one

He’s a musician, poet, teacher, remixer, runner, he’s sponsored by Nike and the British Council, has been Arsenal’s poet in residence, and he’s here to inspire young people to love language, love reading and get writing.

He is Charlie Dark, and if my brief chat with him was anything to go by, he’s exceptional at it. Listen to this inspiring interview, and if you know a young person, pass it on!

He talks about his workshops, his ‘graffiti’ approach to poetry, transferable skills learnt through performance, his failed rap career, Shakespeare as the first MC, and how he tries to inspire young people with his work. [10min 40sec, 10Mb]
