Rise Up Youth is an interactive slam poetry project with the British-Jamaican poetess and performer Sukina Douglas (Poetic Pilgrimage). She is bringing together young people from KA Etterbeek and youth club Chicago to focus on sensitive issues relating to diversity, social justice, taboos and stereotypes. The result will be on display in May at BOZAR.
