Apples and Snakes is the leading organisation for performance poetry in England, with a national reputation for producing exciting and innovative participation and performance work in spoken word.
We work in partnership with creative individuals and organisations across the country to produce high quality artistic experiences – including work with, for and by young people – that raise the profile of spoken word and push the boundaries of the artform, artists and audiences. We offer professional development for artists including advice, training and performance opportunities at a local, national and international level, with a particular focus on nurturing emerging talent and championing marginalised and disenfranchised voices.
