AWAN Artistic Development Workshops in partnership with The Arab British Centre presents:
The Power of Outreach Work in Artistic Practice with Amerah Saleh, Yemeni Spoken Word artist and winner of Youth 4 Excellence Award 2014
Amerah Saleh, a Yemeni spoken word artist based in Birmingham, will lead this workshop dedicated to socially engaged artistic practice and participatory and collaborative outreach work.
Amerah’s own outreach work focuses on empowering young people, a group whose voices are not often heard in public discourse. Through her organisation, Creative Superheroes, she has developed and supported young artists in Birmingham, allowing them to gain work and commissions.
She will demonstrate the importance of engaging with local communities, individuals and groups and examine how this kind of work can inform and develop an artist’s own creative practice and thinking, whilst allowing participants to realise their creative potential.
